Today, Reading and Writing Workshop is more than a place for students to learn the habits and skills of being an effective reader and writer. It is an environment where teachers create the opportunity for students to engage with skills, tools, and mediums in a way that mirrors how we use these new literacies every day. We will look at the structure of workshop i.e., mini-lesson, independent work time, and share time, to see how students are consistently engaging with these new literacies through the inquiry process to answer the question: What choices will I make a reader or writer today? Within an evolving workshop framework, students and adults will engage in an exploratory dialogue that supports critical thinking and promotes social literacy. This session will highlight effective classroom technologies, tools, and strategies which are grounded in student identity, motivation, and self-efficacy. Amazing things happen when students are empowered to read, write, and collaborate with authentic audiences, wherever these may be.
