Join us as we gather educators together to discuss the importance of using notebooks in both reading and writing workshop.
As Ilene introduces the Writer's Notebook, she will reference the work of Ralph Fletcher while highlighting how our units of study support the effective and efficient uses of the notebook as a tool to develop confident and thoughtful writers.
In her afternoon session, Ilene will present an overview on conferring as it relates to assessment, helping writers grow and reflect, as well as the different types of conferences teachers can participate in during their writing workshop.
As Erica introduces the Reading Notebook, she will talk about the organization of the notebook and how the different sections help to support students' "Writing and Thinking About Reading." Additional conversations will be presented about the complement of "talk" as connected to the notebook during reading workshop as well as the lessons in our units that support the use of the notebook to extend and deepen thinking and understanding of text.

If you are an administrator, we invite you to join Pat in the morning. During this session, she will discuss different ways you can sustain and promote best practices in literacy while also motivating your staff to refine their practices.
