About the Course

Reader’s Workshop is an instructional strategy designed to engage students, differentiate instruction and build intrinsic motivation.

So how can we combine the best practices of Reader’s Workshop with technology? This course will provide you with ideas and tools to enhance your Reader’s Workshop through the use of digital tools. In this course, you will review the main components of the Reader’s Workshop Model.
