What is Reader’s Workshop?

by Brooke Reedlunn

(Sample from a parent letter describing literacy education best practices.)

  • Readers have time to read just-right books independently every day.
  • Readers select their own appropriate books.
  • Readers respect each other’s reading time and reading lives.
  • Readers have daily opportunities to talk about their books in genuine ways.
  • Readers don’t just read the words but also understand the story.
  • Readers’ work in the independent reading workshop is replicable outside of the classroom.
