EEDUC 6180 Intentional Teaching in a Readers' Workshop (K-2)

Participants learn the rationale and organizational framework to support a readers’ workshop in the primary classroom, including whole group and small group teaching, and independent reading with individual conferring. Participants consider the purpose and management of literacy centers to promote independent, self -regulated learning. Through analysis of informal assessment data, participants will design explicit instructional experiences for a range of students, including English language learners using The Continuum of Literacy Learning Grades K-8 and other resources. Participants should be teaching or have access to students in order to successfully complete this course.
