Reading Workshop. Literacy Report No. 20.
Wills, Janet M.
Reading workshop employs teaching methods to accomplish the goals of preparing self-disciplined readers who read and write by choice, motivating students to read and write because of a genuine interest, and developing students who learn to read and write by doing. Reading Workshop came into existence as a reaction to the disproportionate amount of time students spend on completing worksheets. A typical Reading Workshop period would include these five components: (1) sharing time; (2) mini-lesson; (3) state-of-the-class, in which teacher and students review responsibilities and progress they have made; (4) self-selected reading and response; and (5) sharing time. When given the opportunity to explore topics of interest while being taught reading strategies, even the lowest readers can be successful. (RS)
