The Curriculum O Reading Workshop Every workshop starts with a mini-lesson on the carpet with the whole class. I model a specific skill or strategy. Students have the opportunity to turn and talk with a partner during the lesson to practice and reflect on the skill. Then students go practice the skill or strategy independently while using their own books. During this independent work time, I meet with small groups and individual students for additional skill practice.
