Reader's Workshop
Our district is now utilizing the MAISA reading units for instruction.  These include Reading with Power, Insight into Characters, Reading Nonfiction with Power and Historical Fiction Book Clubs.

Throughout the year, we will also study various genres that include realistic fiction, mystery, science fiction, historical fiction, biographies, fantasy/fairy tales and informational text.  Students will be allowed to read with a partner, in a small group or independently and will be allowed to choose a book at his/her reading level.

I will use a variety of projects/assignments to assess each student's comprehension of text as well as utilize entries in our reader's notebook.  All projects will have a packet with directions and a rubric.  Book lists for each genre can be found on this site.
