Readers Workshop: Share Time/Closing

The final part of Readers Workshop, is The Share Time or The Closing. Once the students have read independently or with peers (see previous Episode, "The Heart of Readers Workshop"), the teacher brings the students back together one last time to share and debrief how they applied the learned reading strategy/strategies into their reading that day.

The share time is usually the component that teachers 'forget' or 'let go of.' The conversation that takes place during this time is rich and is how students learn from each other. When children get to learn from each other and hear how their peers applied their learning, empowers them to try out what they have heard in the future. Connecting their learning back to the mini-lesson puts their learning into perspective.
