With classrooms that are more diverse than ever before, how can we support English learners to help them reap the same benefits from reading workshop that our English-speaking students do? In her new book Supporting English Learners in the Reading Workshop, Lindsey Moses draws on her years of experience to provide answers to teachers' most common questions about getting started in a linguistically diverse workshop setting.
In today's video post, Lindsey discusses how reading workshop and language acquisition can work simultaneously, and how important it is that everyone's needs are met in the reading and writing process.
