CEU 3457 Reader's and Writer's Workshop: Helping Struggling Students Thrive (3 units)

As schools adopt the Reading and Writing Workshop format for literacy instruction, concerns are being raised about how the needs of struggling readers and writers will be met. For example, what happens for students who are not able to read or write for extended periods of time and/or who require significant scaffolding and strategy instruction that goes beyond what is provided during mini-lessons, conferring, and independent reading/writing? We'll start by grounding ourselves in workshop structures (e.g., writers' notebooks, mini-lessons, and conferring) and then delve into how these structures can be modified to meet students' needs. We'll explore the myriad of assessment, curriculum, instructional and behavioral modifications and strategies that can be put into place to help struggling readers/writers not only survive, but to thrive in workshop formats. Equivalent: EDCT 5246.
