Donnelly, Amy; Egawa, Kathy; Files, Janet; Mills, Heidi; Stephens, Diane
In this Inquiry Study, participants will learn about or refine their understanding of the components of a quality reading program, or what some teachers organize as Reading Workshop. Participants begin by living as readers themselves and then explore how to create supportive contexts for the learners in their classrooms. The use of a variety of assessment tools prepares participants for planning instruction that is relevant for individual readers. Implications and strategies for classroom structures and practice are considered throughout the inquiry study which begins with a list of language and learning concepts and focusing questions. Lists 26 professional reading selections. (NKA)
