Writer's Workshop: Conferring Mini-Books
Conferences are a powerful way to support each student’s growth and independence because teachers are able to meet students right where they are and provide instruction that will potentially have the biggest impact.
During the independent writing time, we want to pull up next to our writers to confer with them about their writing. A writing conference is a one-to-one interaction between an individual writer and his/her teacher, and it is arguably the single most effective way to help a student improve. During this time, we as teachers assess the level to which a student is currently writing and select one way we can provide feedback that supports the student in lifting the level of his/her writing.
