Writer's Workshop
What is Writer's Workshop?
Components of Writing Workshop
The Mini-lesson
A brief, instructional session, that addresses some element of writing is targeted in the current scope and sequence or has appeared as a problem in student work.

At the beginning of the year, mini-lessons may deal with procedural issues such as how to use the daily writing folder, what to do in conferences, etc. Mentor text can be a great resource for mini-lessons.

Independent Writing and Conferencing

Teachers use writing workshop to implement the writing process.

Students are to write about what's vital and real for them. At the same time the teachers role changes from being a provider of knowledge to serving as a guide.

The classroom becomes a community of writers where self-selection, ownership, self-monitoring feedback and individualized instruction are taking place.
Sharing is an extremely important component of the writing workshop that many teachers tend to dismiss due to time constraints.

During the share portion, students contribute what they did during their independent writing time, either with the whole group or with a peer. This gives students the opportunity to observe and learn from each other.

Sharing cards, displays in the classroom and elsewhere in the school, SLA or class newsletter, class website or blog, class book.
The majority of time of Writing Workshop is devoted to independent writing. During this time, students are pre-writing, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing their pieces.

Depending on the age and abilities of your students, independent writing can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as 45-60 minutes.

Students can work in their small moment notebooks or their writing genre assignment of the month. The teacher should be completing a status check of the class and conferencing with individual students.
