The questions I most frequently receive from blog readers, teachers that I coach, and when I'm doing educational consulting for other districts is: "How does it all fit together? What are all of the other students doing during guided reading? How do I make sure I'm still hitting the standards?" These are all valid questions, and these questions sparked the idea to create a product that not only answered all of these questions but showed teachers HOW everything worked. This product was created chalk full of resources, but beyond the resources are lesson plans and directions filled with the WHY to match the HOW. A product that not only focuses on the performance of teaching a lesson, but also the art of teaching behind teaching these lessons and how to plan to differentiate reading instruction, take anecdotal notes, and plan lessons for whole group minilessons and guided reading in the future. Everything I know Reading Workshop to be is laid out step-by-step into one incredible resource.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this product if you're interested in starting Reading Workshop in the fall.
