Big Idea: Readers and Writers work together as a community to develop procedures and expectations to support strong independent literacy habits.
Guiding Questions (Writing)
- Why do writers write?
- How do writers create a voice and not an echo? (your own ideas, a process, word choice and sentence structures)
- How do we use peer partners to revise and edit?
- How do writers get ideas?
- What are expectations for writers (during writer’s workshop)?
- What strategies do writers use to improve their writing?
- What resources do writers use when writing?
- How do I get from a thought to a published piece? (process)
- How do I improve my writing stamina?
- What do writers consider when developing a piece? (RAFTs – role, audience, format, topic)
Guiding Questions (Reading)
- How is Reader’s Workshop organized?
- What systems do we need in place to function effectively as a community of readers? (challenging words, how to choose just right books, where/when to read, when to abandon a book, how to work in a book club, how to challenge myself with new genres, how to set goals)
- What is my role as a thinking reader? (strategies, recording and showing my thinking)
- What are the different purposes of reading (reading in a book club, reading to learn – UOI, reading independently – a challenging book/easy book…)
