    1. Anna Warren on said:

      One of the major purposes Jennifer Serravallo aimed for in this professional text was shedding some light on the one of the biggest challenges many teachers face each day in their classrooms: reading strategy groups. However, Serravallo helps educators take a breath, so to speak, as this resource provides formative assessment tools, strategy ideas and numerous ways to provide to productive and engaging reading environments where students lead the way.Educators involved in teaching reading, looki [...]

      I think there is something for every teacher of reading in this book. Certainly, no one teacher can possibly use ALL of the strategies for grouping and conferencing that Ms. Serravallo suggests, but by thinking about one's own students, there are some good suggestions. Reading workshop, I am finding, is not something where a teacher can just dive in and do it the Lucy Calkins way. Trying to develop a piece of the master plan a bit at a time is what I am doing and am please with what I see. Don't [...]

      As I finished reading this book, I found myself wanting to go back and reread it right then. A great text for planning and working with independent readers in small groups. If you are looking for a fresh look at reading workshop, then this is a must read. Every child in a small group doesn't need to be reading the same text.

    4. Michele Knott on said:

      This book has really helped me wrap my mind about working in small groups, with reading strategies as the focus. This book was easy to read, yet gave me much to think about.

    5. Alexis on said:

      Very useful with immediately applicable strategies for the classroom. Enjoy all the tables and figures for easy reading.

    6. Chris Heim on said:

      This is a good book for teachers trying to figure out how to efficiently confer with their students while the class reads independently. Serravallo's ideas are many, and occasionally I question their manageability, but if you go into the book with the mindset that it's not actually realistic for one teacher to do everything she recommends, and instead decide you'll start small and pick one or two suggestions, then you'll be much better off. It's a worthwhile read if you can apply that kind of cr [...]

      A great book that is practical and enjoyable to read. The author gives many concrete examples of how to teach small groups more effectively. It makes sense to teach to the child and utilize their own reading materials to teach mini-lessons. It is not necessary for the entire class to be reading the same book to discuss something like the main idea or character development. I have it marked and highlighted everywhere!

      New professional book club book. Have to read Chapters 1 and 2 by Tuesday. Lucy Calkin's introduction is awesome!

    9. Gretchen Taylor on said:

      Such thoughtful work showing how explicit, intentional small group instruction works in the workshop classroom- choice and individual needs are still at the center. This is one of my newest go-to professional reads!

    10. Suzanne Kerfin on said:

      MANY grouping ideas, some of which I hadn't thought of (motivational groups, for example). I appreciated the updated outlook on combining flexible, multi-level strategy groups with more traditional "book" groups.

    11. Rachel Vote on said:

      This book is a 2.5. There are a couple useful pieces that I can apply to my classroom, but it is really geared more for elementary students rather than all ages of students who need small group reading instruction.

    12. Laura on said:

      For educators who are either looking to start small reading groups or are looking to refine their small reading groups, Serravallo has ideas to give readers the most time to practice independent, strategic reading.

    13. Daina Jaeger Mundt on said:

      Excellent book for using Readers Workshop in the classroom.

    14. Carmen Reyes on said:

      Jennifer Serravallo spoke at the Teachers College Reading Institute in NYC. She was a very inspiring speaker which led me to purchase her book.

    15. Kristin on said:

      Great tips, strategies, and techniques to use in your classroom! Some ideas can be adapted for content area classes to help students understand textbooks, articles, etc.

      A book that I will draw from repeatedly as I work with staff, developing their craft while teaching small groups.
