We were discussing the reading workshop yesterday and the question has come up, how the teacher can be sure that a Mini-Lesson will apply to all children's individual readings on that day? Suppose some children are reading non-fiction books on the day we are asking them to apply a fiction-related issue (like theme or topic) that we introduce that day? This blog entry seems to show really nicely that the Mini-Lessons apply across books. Still, we feel a bit insecure about this point and would be glad to hear your insights. Thank you so much for yet another interesting post!
