Reading Workshop: The You Can READ IT! Handbook is a reader’s guide to practicing Six Active Reading Strategies: Connect, Visualize, Question, Predict, Clarify, and Evaluate. Each page includes an explanation of the strategy, visuals and/or a mini-anchor chart, prompts and/or questions for the reader to think about during reading, and a section for practicing (on sticky notes) the reading strategies.
Readers may refer to their handbooks during mini-lessons, during active reading, and during guided reading! The handbook may be used to differentiate instruction for individual readers and guided reading groups. It can also be used with the entire class! What’s great about readers having a handbook is that the most important reading strategies are in one place for students to refer to anytime they need to!
The You Can READ IT! Handbook may be used as a tool for discussion during reading conferences, as readers and teachers refer to specific strategies the reader is working on. Teachers may also use the sticky note side of the page to place comments to readers.
The You Can READ IT! Handbook is also a great resource for parents. Parents who are looking for ways to help their child in reading will now have a resource to refer to as they read with their child! The parent and reader may use sticky notes to record anecdotal notes related to at-home reading progress.
There are 4 book cover options, including two with a girl on the front and two with a boy on the front. One says "A Reader's Workshop Handbook" and the other says "A Reader's Handbook" (for teachers who do not follow the workshop model). The handbook is 8.5 x 11 inches.
