Sharing Text to Text Connections
Students share back the text-to-text connections they found during independent reading time.

Another routine that is firmly in place in my classroom is the share out at the end of each workshop. This piece of the workshop is important because it allows students to reflect with each other, as well as hold them accountable for their work. It is also a nice and easy way for the teacher to assess the students. I can quickly tell students who are successful or may still be struggling following the share out.
