Podcast: Patrick Allen

February 18th, 2010

In his new book, Conferring: The Keystone of Reader’s Workshop, Patrick Allen writes:

“Reading should be left somewhat organic. When I confer, I am having the opportunity to talk one-on-one with a reader. About what he is thinking, in the moment… and he is able to beguile me with his thoughts as a reader– holding my attention, interest, and devotion to his coming to know.”

In his most recent podcast (recorded during the CCIRA Conference in Denver), Patrick shared some stories about students coming to know and becoming empowered readers through conferring.
