Writers 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. 

Writer’s Workshop helps students develop strong writing skills through the use of a mini-lesson, independent practice, shared writing, conferencing with the teacher, and displaying writing.

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