Of all of that I enjoy conferring the most. I feel as if my students get my undivided attention. I think the routine of workshop is appreciated by the kiddoes. They know what is expected, & can fulfill those expectations independently (even if they can't independently do what I taught).
Workshop is great for reading & writing. Each day I'm teaching strategies & the kids know they can choose which to use on any given day. I like to say that I also have a math& inquiry (science/social studies) workshop. But do I? Really? Do reading & writing naturally lend themselves to a workshop model because of their holistic nature? Are math& inquiry, although conceptual, more difficult to fit into a workshop model because of their linear nature? Or do I need to re-educate myself on them?
