* Usually, writing workshop begins with a mini lesson ( a whole group lesson), then students work independently on their writing for 20-30 minutes. During this independent writing time , circulate around the classroom and confer with students.
* If you teach writing by giving prompts or assignments, confer with students during class as they work on those assignments.
* When conferring, you might move from desk to desk to sit next to students as they write.
* When conferring, you might sit at a "writing conference table" and call students to you one at a time.
* During a conference, sit side by side with the student, with the student's paper in front of both of you.
* It is best when the conference feels like a conversation, with both you and the student talking and listening to each other.
*Each conference is between five to seven minutes long.
*After each conference, note on the record-keeping forms any areas of need and the student's progress. This will help you remember the strategy you taught and your ideas for follow -up conferences.
