Hi Angela, I stumbled upon your fabulous website and was pleasantly suprised. I have followed many of your tips which have really strengthened our Languae Arts program. I have not been formally trained in the Reading/Writing workshop, but find bits and pieces along the way to best implement into the curriculum. I teach at a private school where, unfortuanately, funds are not available for many professional growth opportunities. Anyway, long story short, I wondered if you could tell me what students should do during the writing component after they have gathered many ideas and then need to begin writing. Do they pick something from their list and begin a story? What do you mean by an entry? Thank you for making this clear for me. I look forward to hearing your response. I am so happy to have found your site!
