Product Description
The key to a successful Reading Workshop at the middle school level is allowing students enough time for their independent reading. Allowing students time for independent reading allows teachers time for individual reading conferences and guided reading groups. Teaching whole class novel units will never teach students the reading skills they need to be successful in life or to meet the CCSS. Break away from whole class novel units and try out teaching your Reading Workshop with minilessons. All the information you need to get started and create your own reading minilessons is in this free product. This includes:

*Rationales for why Reading Minilessons are effective.
*Explanations of the different parts of a reading minilesson (Book Talk, Activating Background Knowledge/Providing a Rationale, Minilesson Statement, Modeling, Have-a-go, Application, Share, and Extension) .
*A printable template that you can use for planning your own reading minilessons with prompting questions to guide you.
*A teacher self-evaluation to help you measure the effectiveness of your reading minilesson.

As a middle school literacy coach certified using the Literacy Collaborative framework from Lesley University, this is my understanding of best practice for teaching reading to middle school students. It instilled a passion for reading fiction and non-fiction texts for the readers in my classroom, and it can for yours, too!

Be on the look out for more of my upcoming products that will include setting up a Reader's Notebook, starting the Reading Workshop for middle school students, and units aligned with the CCSS with minilessons and teacher resources pre-made and ready for use.
