Readers and Writers Workshop


Readers Workshop

“… an instructional model for teaching reading that marries explicit instruction in reading strategies with opportunities for students to practice each reading strategy independently, with a peer, and in small groups.”

So What Exactly is Writer’s Workshop?

For some, Writer’s Workshop is a philosophy, but I like to look at it simply as a way

of managing the class. Each Writer’s Workshop period follows the same basic format:

􏰀 Mini-Lesson(5-15minutes1).A short lesson focused on a single topic

that students need help with. You don’t need to give a mini-lesson each

day; 2-3 times a week is usually just fine.

􏰀 StatusoftheClass(2-5minutes).A quick way of finding out what each

student is working on.

􏰀 WritingTime(20-45minutesormore!). They write. You can write and/or

conference with individual students or small groups.

􏰀 Sharing(5-15minutes). Writers read what they have written and seek

feedback from their audience. You can share your writing, too.
