As the conversation continues around school change, Lucy Caulkins, Mary Ehrenworth and Laurie Pessah (along with their army of colleagues at TCWRP) show how a student-centered language arts curriculum looks and feels. Reading and Writing workshop gives space for rigorous, yet joyful work. It feels like learning for life, not "school work." I'm in.

So much to think about! Definitely an important read for school leaders.

This is a book that took me a while to read. I was savoring certain parts, and taking copious notes on others. There are so many great processes to put into place into a school that is embracing workshop teaching. I especially loved the ideas for "instructional rounds" and "thin slicing". Both could have great implications for enhancing students' and teachers' learning. I know I will be returning to this one again and again!

One of the best professional books I have ever read. As someone who is attempting to start reader and writer workshop in my class, reading how to get it started on a school leadership level was great.
