Brittan Acres hosts District-Wide Readers/Writers Workshop

Reading and writing workshops are deliberately designed to offer a simple and predictable environment so that our teachers can focus on the complex work of observing students' progress and teaching to their needs.The brief mini-lessons that begin each day in reading and writing workshop are a time for teacher-led explicit instruction.

While the content of mini-lessons will change from day to day; minilessons contain four components: connection, teaching, active engagement and link. In third grade our students were learning to summarize the text. They read a chunk, and were prompted to stop and think, “what’s the main idea?” They then reread for details to support and prove It.
