This week our reading workshop switched gears. While we wrapped our discussion of the testing genre we also made the switch to exploring our background as a reader. It helps us move forward if we know where we started!
Wrapping up the testing genre including taking a turn at answering a constructed response question. These can be tricky! We discussed what the authors were looking for if they designed a constructed response question, how to find the answer (look BACK in the text), and how to write OUR answer to what is actually a multi-step problem. These were grade on a scale of 1-4 and returned to the students for further in-class discussion.
To wrap up this week's post, I've added a few photos of Reader's Workshop entries from Friday:
