Imagine a literacy-centered classroom where reading and writing are no longer viewed as school skills, but as life skills--a classroom where students voluntarily and spontaneously engage in discussions about their reading and writing. This book offers personal evidence of the workshop approach as it applies to a balanced language arts program for grades 3-5. It provides actual conference records, samples of student work and teacher feedback, and the research supporting the effectiveness of the workshop model. It offers a framework for providing instruction that meets the needs of all learners and instills a lifelong love of reading and writing. Following an introduction, the book is divided into these chapters: (1) "Why Use the Workshop Approach?"; (2) "Setting Up the Workshop"; (3) "Record Keeping and Assessment"; (4) "Putting It All Together: The Workshop in Action"; and (5) "Focus Lessons." A section follows called "Final Thoughts." (Contains 32 references, 4 suggestions for additional professional reading, 4 resources for classroom book collections, and 3 resources for response ideas. Appendix contains assessment and record-keeping forms that can be adapted to suit various workshop approaches.) (nka)
