If you've heard about reading and writing workshop, but are unsure where to begin, I'd point you to this book as well as Donalynn Miller's The Book Whisperer. Though not comprehensive of the strategies and structures present in a healthy workshop classroom, this book will help you shift your thinking about writing instruction and give you some ideas about how to begin. Plus, it's a quick and accessible read, which is always a bonus for time-starved teachers!

Very down-to-earth. Lots of good ideas--for the teacher to be a better teacher. There are good ideas for classrooms, too.
A couple of favorite quotes:
*Teaching writing requires more than keeping kids busy.
*Simply having a structure doesn't guarantee successful writing groups.
* Writing instruction is a compilation of your own experiences, the wisdom of others, and what your students tell you and show you they need.
