Teaching writing is tough when there's one teacher and many, many students who need help. Peer conferring is the way to go. Students develop confidence, relationships and communication skills when they have the opportunity to help and teach each other. But students don't always know how to interact during peer conferences and may even goof off. So, all writing workshop teachers should dedicate time to teaching students the behavior they expect of students during peer conferences. This writing workshop bundle will definitely help!

The Bundle Includes:

Two Cartoon Videos
Video One: Teaches students that working with a writing partner can be hard and give tips on how to be successful when working with a partner. Length: 1 min 15 sec
Video Two: Teaches students how to interact during writing conferences using engaging tween cartoon characters and lots of sentence stems students can use during their conferences.
