Revitalizing Reading Workshop

June 24-25, 2020

Grades K-8

$275 per person

Virtual Workshop

 

This TWO DAY workshop is a concentrated look at raising the rigor of your Readers' Workshop.  This is designed for teachers that have already had basic training in reading workshop and understand the structures.   We will be teaching ways to strengthen and breathe new life across across each component of the reading workshop. Engagement is the key for teaching to stick. 

 

This workshop will look at ways to:

  • strengthen student engagement during workshop minilesson:

    •     defining and understanding how to put "legs" on a strategy 

    •     developing strong anchor charts that support the strategy beyond the lesson

  • strengthen student engagement during independent reading using:

    •      BOOKBAGS: tackling the management and consistency of just right book in      their hands

    •      READING LOGS: looking at reading logs as tool for goal setting

    •      the MID WORKSHOP TEACH: understanding that there is a second                      teaching opportunity

    •      PARTNERSHIPS: how to match and support partnerships in conferences as      well as opportunities to teach again in the SHARE

    •      Those darn POST IT NOTES:  How can I help kids know WHAT to jot and            WHEN to jot it? We will dig into this in particular with readers reading at          levels J and above

    •      Using READ ALOUD to assess comprehension (to help the big question              of "How can I take a grade?")

     

It is our hope to give you a renewed vigor for workshop and to strengthen your understanding of ways to use the workshop approach to its maximum potential in order to raise student engagement. We are looking forward to sharing new refreshing ideas and revisiting a few important structures to help you tighten up the workshop component  in your classroom.
