It is imperative to set up expectations and procedures to make your workshop time run smoothly and efficiently, even if students have learned under the workshop model prior to entering your room.
This lesson bundle of SIX LESSONS teaches middle schoolers and upper elementary school students how to take responsibility for their independent workshop time. Identifying challenges/obstacles that may occur and how to navigate around them. They will practice utilizing mentor texts and learn how to create a writing plan for each work period.
Students will engage in a quick game and a fast paced activity, as well as viewing a youtube video- all without eye rolls from your students!
