Readers Conference 2

Myers has a reader's conference during independent reading time.

Students in readers workshop read all different leveled books, however the same strategies are taught to each reader in the classroom. Most of the time, I will ask students to use one of their strategies to help them when they are stuck on a word or phrase. These strategies should be modeled thoroughly by the teacher before expecting the students to reference them on their own. An example that I teach my students is to “sound out the word” if they are stuck on the word. I always make the student repeat back to me what they will plan on working on. Then, I use that time to write down the teaching point in my conference notes.
