What is Reading Workshop

Multifaceted Strategies for Social-Emotional Learning and Whole Learner Education
An approach to teaching reading that involves a brief whole-class minilesson where the teacher demonstrates through think alouds with an authentic text and time for students to read independently while the teacher confers individually with students or provides small group instruction. Reading workshop lessons often include a mid-workshop check-in and a whole-class share to wrap up the instruction.

Balancing Literacies: UDL/CSP-Infused Elementary Reading Instruction
Laurie Rabinowitz (Bank Street College of Education, USA) and Amy Tondreau (Austin Peay State University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-4906-3.ch005
This chapter outlines an approach to whole learner education in an elementary school literacy classroom by building upon the work of scholars in Disability Studies in Education (DSE) and Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy (CSP). It begins by introducing the connections between whole learner education, DSE, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and CSP, demonstrating how these theoretical frameworks overlap and how they can be used in tandem to enhance the work already done in each field. After providing this theoretical background, the chapter outlines the components of a balanced literacy block in a third grade classroom, demonstrating how elementary school educators can work to meet the individual learning needs of developing readers in the various areas of balanced literacy (i.e., phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension), while also attending to student identities and making instruction accessible to students with learning variations.
