Reading, Writing, & Math Workshop K-12 – Theory and Practice – February 2015

Our last meeting was full of fantastic conversation.  The opening 4 corner activity had some great conversation going on around “Workshop” instruction in our buildings and classrooms.

After that we quickly reviewed workshop structures and had a VERY brief overview of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) looking at the UDL Guidelines and main website for UDL information.

Then we dove headfirst into videos showing workshop in action and then reflecting on how we could see, Common Core, UDL, and other workshop components in action.
