Readers Workshop

What is Reader's and Writer’s Workshop?

Reader's and Writer’s Workshops provide students with a supportive environment that involves them in authentic reading and writing experiences that focus on the strengths and needs of each individual student. 

 Reader's Workshop helps students develop strong reading skills through the use of a mini-lesson, independent practice, shared reading, conferencing with the teacher,and reading with a partner.

The basic philosophy behind the Reading Workshop is to allow students to spend an extended amount of time reading authentic texts that interest them on a daily basis and to provide opportunities to talk about their reading. The ultimate goal of a Reading Workshop is always to develop life-long passionate readers.
