WRITING ABOUT WHAT WE READ!

READ A NOVEL AND WRITE A FINAL ESSAY

During this workshop, students practice these skills:

  • Reading comprehension of longer (novel-based) text

  • Writing responses using evidence from the text

  • Paragraph structure and organization

  • Engaging in meaningful book talks

This workshop is designed to help students manage the large comprehension load that comes with reading longer texts. Students will have the opportunity to read a novel and interact with the text through thoughtful book talks, comprehension questions, and a cumulative essay. They will be taught how to organize their ideas into a well-structured essay. Students will leave with strategies to support comprehension and graphic organizers to help with extended writing.

Following the workshop, instructor Alyssa Laliberte will provide a written report for each student explaining the student’s strengths and next steps for development.
