Choice Cycle 2: Moving Toward Independence
Day 4: Seek and ye shall find
Challenge: Chat with your students about ways you can work together to organize the classroom library so that it’s used in writing workshop, as well as in reading workshop. Determine how baskets of books can be organized so that searching for mentor texts becomes an easy task for the students you teach.
How will you show your students how you use mentor texts to lift the level of your writing?
What steps will you take to help a student who does not independently seek out his or her own mentor texts to develop reading-writing initiative?
