  Easy, informative read.

The writing workshop model is clearly described and modeled. I loved this short but sweet book. There is an excellent bibliography of children's literature to use as a jumping off point for writer's workshop in you class.
  Good Reference

This book is an excellent reference and guide for a teacher looking to implement a writing workshop in their class.
  Excellent resource!

This book does exactly what it says. It breaks writing workshop down into its essential components and provides the reader with the basic formats of writing worshop. It doesn't give you all of the answers, but at the end of each chapter it provides points for "making it work in the classroom" and an entire chapter on troubleshooting potential problems. If you want to implement writing workshop and want an easy-to-read guide that provides your with the basics of workshop, then this book is the perfect starting point.
  Outstanding Read!

I have taught writing for the past five years utilizing the teaching structure, writing workshop. I have also taught teachers how to teach using writing workshop and this has been the most helpful book in training new teachers. It is an easy read with lots of timelines, teacher guides, quick summaries at the end of chapters and practical advice. There are a lot of books out there about writing workshop, but this one is concise, clear and enjoyable to read. This is worth the money! Enjoy :)
