Clip to ScrapBook #2

but one of the most important aspects to running a successful workshop is to let go of the idea that everyone must be planning at the same time, writing first copies at the same time....the letting go is what I would say is the hardest part for teachers. It's okay, even desirable, to have kids all over the place in terms of the writing process.

It's instant differentiation, because you're giving short mini lessons to individual kids or small groups--you give each kid what THEY need right now.
