We just a posted a clip from Patrick Allen’s new video, What Are You Thinking? The author of Conferring: The Keystone of Reader’s Workshop takes you inside his classroom as he confers with nine different students over two days. Patrick demonstrates how to connect with readers, how to monitor their progress through individual records, and, perhaps most important, how to encourage children to love books and reading while honoring their individuality.
Let’s face it: conferring in reader’s workshop is hard work. Throughout What Are You Thinking? Patrick provides a strong model for navigating the open-ended possibilities that each reader brings to a reading conference.
