Links to sites about Reader's Workshop

Here's some reading just in time for Christmas!
  • I cannot give a set of links about Reader's Workshop without mentioning the fabulous Beth Newingham. Without her extensive website, I never would have been about to get my head around the organisational aspects of Reader's Workshop. She is terribly generous with her resources, and no doubt you'll find something there to help you. Beth also contributes to the Scholastic website and I found two great posts there Reading Workshop: What it looks like in my class and Assessment in my Reading Workshop.
  • Once Upon a Reading Workshop is a blog in long format which has lots of information as you move through it. It's definately written by a teacher who is continuously reviewing and learning, so there's lots of insightful thinking there.
  • Welcome to Reader's Workshop:  An overview of a Reader's Workshop, with some ideas, resources and references. The resources are aimed at younger grades.
Hope you all have a restful Christmas weekend. I'll be back next week with more ideas, information, resources and recommendations.
