One of the first books I read when I first started delving into Reading Workshop is Revisiting the Reading Workshop. Of course there are many other books about reading workshop, most of which are very lengthy and take a while to get through. One reason I was drawn to this book is that is very thorough while also being a quick, easy-to-follow read. This book will provide you with a clear idea of what reading workshop looks like, how it is managed, and how to launch it successfully with the students in your classroom. I also have a list of my favorite professional books about reading workshop in the Teacher Resource section of my classroom website.
