Practices during reader-writer workshop
Clear goals and expectations
It's hard to get anywhere if you aren't sure where you're headed. Make sure you and the students know both.
Timely. Specific. Actionable. Understandable.
Used on a daily basis, students respond in writing to reading or write original work.
Students use professional or teacher created texts as models.
Teachers make their thinking visible to teach critical skills.
Self-selected texts for reading
It's all about the power of choice to motivate students to read.

Feedback given face-to-face is powerful.
So this should go without saying, but you have to have quality management to make workshop work for you.
