reader's workshop

That question has been asked on here a lot, and none of us really know... here's the deal: you aren't going to find research on reader's workshop, you're going to find research on best practice. These things have TONS of scientific research to show that they improve reading:

- sustained reading time
- multiple re-readings
- individual attention from a teacher
- book choice/ motivation

Read the book What Really Matters for Struggling Readers: it will give you all the back-up you need. Ignore the title-- it has all the research sited in there and the research shows that it's good for all readers.

Also: k-2 Reading and Writing connections (Mermelstein) is riddled with research and studies that back up reader's workshop.

When I was first looking for back-up, I mistakenly thought that I needed to be looking for up-to-date stuff. But the truth is that the studies that really matter-- ones that are anchors in educational research have been around forever and have never stopped saying the same thing: "readers need to read a lot and they need to choose their own reading materials."

Thanks Bookmuncher, you are very helpful! I'll add that book to my growing "must read" list!!

Some exciting news! I brought RWM to my principals attention and she likes it SO much, that she's going to use it as our book study for next year! ) YAY!

I heard again that Lucy Caulkins was publishing Units of Study for Reading. Has anyone heard anymore than that such as a publishing date? I would really like to get that!

I had heard that too, but couldn't find any confirmation on it... I asked Judy to ask her "people" at the institute, but she couldn't uncover anything.

I'm mixed on that... the writing ones have been my saviour, but there's something about reading that's just different. My friend and I agreed this year that while we loved Growing Readers and found that our kids needed it, it did insert a little more of a formality that took a little of the excitement out of workshop. When we got back into Debbie Miller, that went away-- probably because all of my mini-lessons weren't quite as spelled out. For me, RW works better when the teacher has a unit plan and some ideas of bends in the road, but can easily let the children take the reigns.

That said-- it'd still buy it if it came out!

I can second that recommendation on "What Really Matters....." I heard about it on PT, bought it, read it twice and refer to it a great deal! I think it would be just what you are looking for MissGena.

Planning

In planning some inferring lessons for next week, I came across two things I thought you might like to use in your support of RW - missgena. Hope you find them useful!

Thanks for the two sites. It's a wonderful tool for all that are trying to incorporate several philosophies/authors.

Another Resource

You are WELCOME.

I guess you could say I had a "DUH" moment earlier. I was using thereadinglady site for gathering inferring information and remembered this PPT helped me a great deal back in Sept. 2006 when I first discovered these reading strategies. Of course I didn't actually read MOT or STW until January-February - these PPT's got me started. Hope you find them useful as they refer to the research. Scroll down to PPT's and it's the 1st one.
