Small Group Work in Reading Workshop: Shared Reading, Guided Reading, Strategy Lessons, Book Clubs and More (K-2) (VT Reads Institute, Stowe, VT)


How do you address the individual needs of each reader in your classroom? In this session, participants will study methods for teaching small groups inside a reading workshop model. You’ll study various methods with an eye toward how to select from a variety of engaging, age appropriate methods that not only help children move along a progression of reading ability – these methods also foster a deep love of reading. Participants in this session will view video clips of some methods, as well as practice some of the methods first-hand in simulations. This session will also help participants make connections between best practices in reading instruction to the Common Core State Standards. Participants should bring several books that reflect the approximate levels their students can typically read independently.
