Writing Conference

During Writing Workshop, I start out the class period with a minilesson, and once I've taught the lesson and students begin to independently write, I start writing conferences with my students.  Writing conferences are a place where I learn about my students as individuals and what exactly they need from me, as their teacher.  The video above is a mock writing conference that I did with one of my colleagues as a model writing conference during a professional development session based on a piece of writing from one of my 6th grade students.
