Joyce Armstrong Carroll has done it again! Bringing together over four decades of teaching with her ability to put her finger on the pulse of what is needed in the profession, Dr. JAC's Reading/Writing Workshop Primer is a big little book packed with nuts and bolts information necessary to design and sustain reading/writing workshop for any grade level K-12. Framed simply into seven substantive sections: introduction, definition, organization, setting it up, tracking teaching, assessment, this primer concludes with suggested sources, a plethora of annotated reference waiting to become part of any school's professional library. Yet, while offering techniques, models, and tips, Carroll is clear–workshop offers choices–choices for the teacher and choices for the student. While there is no way to "do" workshop, this primer invites the novice as well as the experienced to range around its pages for ideas. Innovative strategies such as "Reading Memory Quires" and "Literacy Letters," distinctions made and examples given for the many ways to assess the aspects of workshop, models for creating a workshop that works are among the features in this helpful teacher resource.
