This workshop will help educators better understand the structures of reading and writing workshop, including the architecture of Interactive Read-Alouds, Mini-Lessons, and conferences.
This workshop will present information about both reading and writing workshop. Teachers will learn about the benefits of "reading like a writer"—observing how to analyze mentor texts for the purpose of noticing craft techniques. Teachers will also understand the uses for our Writing Fundamentals Units of Study while gaining a deeper appreciation of the stages of the writing process and the qualities of writing that each stage represents. During our discussion of reading workshop, teachers will learn about the rationale of teaching through a genre lens–observing how to view Read-Aloud lessons through multiple lenses and learning how Mini-Lessons help teachers provide explicit instruction about the structures, purposes, and features of texts. A brief discussion on using a Reader's Notebook will also be presented, highlighting the uses of a demonstration notebook.
