Overview

Reading and Writing Workshop Training 

Over the last six years, I’ve provided staff development around Balanced Literacy, Reading Workshop, and Writing Workshop in K-5 schools, across districts and all around the U.S. The work has focused on methods of instruction, content knowledge, and structures across classrooms, schools, and throughout districts. I’ve provided staff development to a wide range of educational professionals – teachers, student teachers, support staff, coaches, TOSA’s, principals, district liaisons, curriculum specialist, curriculum super intendants, and others. I’ve helped teachers get workshop up and running in their classrooms and I’ve helped strong workshop teachers heighten their teaching abilities.

 

The work I’m able to provide ranges in length and content – ranging from one-day seminars on single topics to yearlong cycles of study taking place in and out of workshop classrooms. All professional development structures are dependent upon the content covered and groupings of teachers. Often times, multi-day cycles of staff development are broken up into grade level groupings or focus area groups (see below for an example).

Possible SD Days:

Single Days: Read Alouds, Understanding TCRWP (Lucy Calkins) Units of Study, Getting Workshop Up and Running, Utilizing Assessments to Inform Instruction (writing & reading), Conferring and Small Group Success, Components of Balanced Literacy (Read Aloud, shared/interactive writing, shared reading, word study, oral rehearsal), In-depth Genre Study (reading & writing), Conferring Toolkits (writing & reading), etc

 

Multi-Day: Diving into Workshop – Move beyond solid structures and routines to focus on great teaching; A Genre Focused Study; Student talk & quality questioning to deepen understanding; Using components of balanced literacy to meet various student needs, varying small group structures to give all students access, perfecting the individual conference, etc

Staff Development Example: Multi Day Cycles– in first half and second half of year*

Day 1 – Kindergarten group 1/2 day & 1st grade group 1/2 day

Day 2 – 3rd grade group 1/3 day, 4th Grade group 1/3 day, 5th grade group 1/3 day

Day 3 – 2nd grade group 1/2 day & Kindergarten group 1/2 day

Day 4 – 5th grade group 1/3 day, 5th Grade group 1/3 day, 4th Grade group 1/3

Day 5 – 1st grade group 1/2 day & 2nd grade group 1/2 day

*Each group has a meeting then enters a classroom to practice and ends in a meeting room

 

Second Half of Year*

Day 1 – 4th grade group 1/2 day & 5th grade group 1/2 day

Day 2 – Kindergarten group 1/3 day, 1st grade group 1/3 day, 2nd grade group 1/3 day

Day 3 – 3rd grade group 1/2 day & 4th grade group 1/2 day

Day 4 – 1st grade group 1/3 day, 2nd grade group 1/3 day, Kindergarten grade group 1/3

Day 5 – 5th grade group 1/2 day & 3rd grade group 1/2 day

*Each group has a meeting then enters a classroom to practice and ends in a meeting room

In this example, each grade level receives 1.66 days of content and practice stretching across ten days of instruction.
