While meeting with a guided reading group, teachers are often challenged to keep other students engaged in independent and shared activities. This workshop explores literacy centers, or workstations, as a key component of balanced literacy programs. Participants will practice constructing activities that are meaningful and aligned with the Standards, avoiding mere busy work. They will explore constructive independent reading and writing activities that require metacognition. Additionally, participants will explore task cards and tiered activities as a means of differentiating instruction.
