I liked Ralph Fletcher's What a Writer Needs This book also had some great information and I'm sure that it is very affective for k-6 teachers. They are, after all, the intended audience.

But the book was not helpful for me at all. I am trying to figure out how to adapt this reading/writing workshop approach to a Sophomore and Senior English class, because our district is implimenting this 6-12. As our high school's demonstration classroom teacher, I need to apply it to my courses and then have other teachers in my room to see how it is done.

So, I bought a bunch of books on the reading/writing workshop in order to educate myself. And I can not find one single book on how to apply this to the high school setting. I'm open to suggestions.

Marilyn Carr Sarah, you may be interested in this book:

It is very high school focused. I read it with an elementary teachers' reading group and they all complained that it was too advanced.

It's not written as a writer's workshop textbook, rather it separates writing into 2 forms. Writing to Learn and Public Writing and it spans all subjects not just Language Arts or English.

Hope this helps

Marilyn
