Writer's Workshop

In writer's workshop students are taught using a workshop format which includes a mini-lesson, independent writing time, partner work and share time.  There is also time for conferencing with 
individual students and conducting small group strategy lessons as needed. The most exciting part for the students is the publishing
 process. They feel like real authors as they revise, edit, illustrate, and receive positive feedback from their teacher and classmates about their story. When our stories are complete, we will end our unit with a writing celebration.
