Rose (comment #37),
You asked some specific questions about strategy groups. I know that you mentioned you already read my reading working assessment post, but I actually provide more specific information about strategy groups in an older post from last year, "Reading Workshop: What it Looks Like in My Clasroom." Here is a link to that post: http://blogs.scholastic.com/top_teaching/2009/10/reading-workshop.html
Let me know if you still have questions after reading the strategy lesson section of the post. There is even a handout that explains how the lessons are different from guided reading lessons, and there is also a strategy lesson planning sheet that you can download.
I hope this helps!
