Using Workshop Model to Keep Kids Motivated (with Cris Tovani)

This daylong workshop will focus not only on the components of workshop model but also on how to use learning targets, timely feedback, and planning structures to increase student engagement. When students have ample opportunities to read, write, and discuss important ideas, literacy instruction becomes part of the routine not an add on to the curriculum. Participants will examine examples of how workshop model can be used to help them plan, instruct, and assess learning. Cris Tovani will show examples of student work and share how she uses workshop model as a planning and assessment structure to help students in all content areas stay engaged longer.
