Assessment in My Reading Workshop: My Mentor Text

By Beth Newingham on May 13, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

I recently read an outstanding book written by two of my favorite Reading Workshop gurus, Franki Sibberson and Karen Szymusiak. It is called Day-to-Day Assessment in the Reading Workshop: Making Informed Instructional Decisions in Grades 3–6.

I would highly advise any teacher who is beginning to implement a reading workshop or who has already established a reading workshop in her classroom to read this book from cover to cover. It is a quick read, but is filled with so much important and practical information about assessment in the reading workshop. It also includes a plethora of management tools and tips, useful assessment forms, informative questionnaires, and authentic examples of student work.

Reading this book really helped me improve upon my own approach to assessment in Reading Workshop.
