The Effects of Implementing a Reading Workshop in Middle School Language Arts Classrooms
Thomas, Angela Falter
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v9 Oct 2012
Two language arts teachers in a small, rural middle school set a goal of improving their reading instruction and ultimately their students' learning. The two teachers implemented Reading Workshop as their new methodology for teaching reading to all six of their 7th and 8th grade classes. Interviews and classroom observations, over the course of eight months, showed that implementing Reading Workshop has some positive effects. According to the data, the change in teaching led to improvements with the students including increased motivation, comprehension and learning experiences.
