Middle School and the Workshop Model

Readers/Writers Workshop is FABULOUS for the elementary grades, however, it doesn't work the same in a middle school class setting. This is why your frustration is so high. Try mixing it up. I allow my students their Independent Reading Novels that they must be reading at home and during class time IF there is time, however, I also incorporate class novels. Right now we are currently reading Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullally Hunt. They love it, I love it, and we are able to have AMAZING class discussions and teachable moments throughout.
