Video Segment.

Further Discussion

A workshop participant.

Find this segment approximately 47 minutes and 5 seconds after the begining of the video. Watch for about 8 1/2 minutes.

After watching the workshop participant's discussion, consider these questions:

  • In both small- and whole-group discussions, the workshop participants talked about the role of the teacher and students when planning and using classroom routines. How do these roles differ in each classroom excerpt?
  • First- and second-grade teacher teacher Marcy Prager questioned how students who struggle with reading and writing could effectively and independently engage in literacy routines. What do you think? How do you enable every child in your class to participate in independent literacy routines?
  • What else would you add to the workshop participants' discussion?
