Readers Conference 4

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

During this conference I have focused on a craft element that the student and I have noticed the author uses. The craft element was a repeating line throughout the story. Some conferences are shorter than others, like in this case. After hearing the student read for awhile, I leave her with my teaching point. In addition, I remind her what the assignment was for the independent work time. I do this by asking her, “Tell me what your job is today during readers workshop? “. After she confirms what it is, I move on to the next student to begin to confer with them.
