Upper elementary-level teachers face an important challenge: teaching children how to read while enabling them to build good habits so they fall in love with reading. Many teachers find the independent Reading Workshop to be the component of reading instruction that meets this challenge. Sessions are devoted to the individual units of study as well as examples of mini-lessons and reading conferences.

Session topics:

Session 1: Structures for Success

  • Exploring the Reading Units of Study resources
  • Groundwork for success – the underlying structure of the workshop
  • Physical set up of your reading world: classroom libraries, student book selections, and reading volume

Session 2: Using the Learning Progression

  • Learning Progressions in Small Group Instruction
  • Learning Progressions for Independent Practice
  • Conferring Structures
  • Learning Progressions in Conferring Sessions

Session 3: Delving Deeper

  • Writing About Reading – Reader’s Notebook
  • The Interactive Read Aloud
  • Book Clubs
  • Small Group Instruction
  • Fleshing out an If…Then unit

Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section.
