Changing beliefs about conferring, one teacher at a time

November 4th, 2009

In an in-depth interview on A Year of Reading blog, Patrick Allen talks about his new book, Conferring: The Keystone of Reader’s Workshop. He tells Stenhouse author and blogger Franki Sibberson about the origins of his book and about what he hopes teachers will take away from it.

“A lot of Conferring is about the journey I went through as I tried to change some of my beliefs and to enhance my instruction. I hope that as people read the book, they’ll understand that like all great learning, learning to confer takes time, energy, and practice, but it’s well-worth the effort! My own journey has made conferring the keystone of my reader’s workshop.”
