Talk moves continue to move us into a more collaborative student centered classroom environment. The idea of revising your thinking and the silent agreement component are critical parts of the routines and rituals of this approach.

Good techniques for improving student/class participation.

The Happy Teacher - Reader's Workshop

The Happy Teacher - Reader's Workshop | First Grade | Scoop.it
Reader's workshop conference running record app for iOS
Kimberly A. Hurd's insight:

Great for the first grade classroom as well.  "During the Reader's Workshop conference, the teacher will be able to record a 3-point rating scale for each of the above categories. The teacher can also take notes, document book details, and make recordings during the conference that can be referenced later."

More great ideas for educators!

 

Lee Hall's curator insight, June 10, 2013 4:55 PM

It is more fun to learn creating you own story. The word story makes it sound like a fantasy tale, but it could be steps in a process, a summary of what you have learned in class, or a biography
