Reasons Why I LOVE Writer's Workshop
1- All students work at their own level.
2- Students develop a love of writing because they are writing about what they LOVE!
3- Differentiated Instruction! Assisting each child to reach & surpass their individual goals!

Great site to help you organize your Writer's Workshop and develop mini-lessons based on the needs of your class.
I love the idea of setting up an organized conference area where you can also display student writing.
Students self-assess themselves and give a visual indication that they are right on target (green) struggling a little/ have
a question (yellow) and feel stuck (red).
