Hi,

i recently went to a workshop called Empowering Writers, which was excellent, and most of the attendees said they aren't doing daily five anymore, they are using a workshop approach, my question is are most schools still doing daily five.

My school is moving towards the workshop approach since it will soon be mandated.

When I first started at my school 5 years ago most teachers were doing daily 5 and CAFE. Now no one is. It just didn't really work for our population. We're a really low SES school and for the most part kids come in with no skills. They need a lot of direct instruction. I think daily 5 makes more sense in wealthier schools where kids come in knowing the basics and really benefit from more time in text.

I don't do Daily 5 anymore, but I use MANY of the components.

We build our stamina for independent learning in the exact manner described in D5.
We do read to self, work on writing, word work, and listen to reading in addition to some other things.

I teach my students about good fit books and three ways to read a book.

Everything I learned while implementing D5 and also delivering PD in it is reflected in the independent learning time in my classroom.

What I don't do anymore is CAFE.

As with anything I have used - Daily 5, Book clubs, Lit circles - I find what part of it I like and use it. I continue Daily 5 because it meets my needs of having a core structure that I can be sure my curriculum will be presented.
We also use Daily 3 in math. It has really changed the way our math teachers use the time in class. Less lecture and more student time on materials.
I'd like to know more about the "workshop" approach.

I use parts. I like the setup of the tasks. I am big on merging methods and programs. Just take the best pieces of everything!

Different definitions

There are different definitions of a workshop approach to teaching. I’ve always taught a workshop type approach when allowed (one year I was mandated to follow a reading curriculum....I quit lol). Many would say daily 5 is a way to set up a workshop. I see a workshop as a student centered approach with lessons that are created based on student need (this includes how long, what format, and grouping decisions ) and where students have choices in how they use their time. My daily 5 is flexible in how I set it up and I have created my choices to fit student need and resources. I see it as a workshop that has clear expectations and goals. I’ve taught workshop at different grade levels and in different ways, Daily 5 or my version of it, has been another way to organize my workshop. I think when anybody starts to dictate how an ela block should be set up and ran, even when titled a “workshop” without regard to the day to day needs of students it becomes less of a workshop and more of a mandated adult driven structure....not a workshop.

Fifth grade teacher here,

I still use Daily 5 and CAFE because I find it to be the best workshop model for reading. It is interesting that people say they aren't using it, because I find that it is really popular still.

as I am not sure it was ever an official thing in our elementary here.

As for me, I definitely still use parts of both D5 and CAFE. I teach SpEd though so that may make a difference in this survey too.

I do teach the CAFE strategies as I feel they are a good list and it is easy to find resources for them. I use the framework for the D5 but add in any tasks my students need rather than just reading/writing. The rotations are reasonable and fit my students' attention span best. It lets me individualize by skill or mini-lessons in 1:1 or small group.

We call our boxes "workboxes" instead of book boxes as some kids see me for math or other lessons as well.
