This package includes the rationale of the reader's workshop and the role a reader's response journal plays in the workshop.
I've included a description of how I implement the workshop in my classroom. In order to be sure students understand the requirements of the journal, I added the comprehension strategies and text structure sheets. To help with record keeping, I included conferring sheets as well as questions that can be asked during the conferring sessions. For assessment, the rubric I created is included. Finally, I added internet resources I use often in my classroom.
I hope you find this useful. You will see your students become better readers and they will come to love reader's workshop in your class. Enjoy!
