Atwell describes an appealing approach to reading and writing. To some teachers, the approach can seem quite daunting for their situations. Dan Rothermel simplified Atwell's approach for his middle school classes and wrote Starting Points: How to Set Up and Run a Writing Workshop (Paperback) describing his modifications. Now, he uses his modifications with pre-service teachers in the Department of Education at UNE.

We are discussing how to use technology to support the approach. Noelle Richard, one of our candidate interns, used GoodReads in an eighth grade Saco Middle School reading class to support the Reading/Writing Workshop approach. We'd like to learn how others are using it, too.
