Although teachers have been using the Reading Workshop approach successfully for years, until now there hasn't been a step-by-step guide for implementing the strategies in the upper elementary classroom. Laura Candler's Power Reading Workshop offers an easy classroom-tested method for using Reading Workshop in your own classroom. You'll learn how to motivate readers by providing time for independent reading and reading conferences. As a result, your students will learn to love reading, and you'll improve reading test scores at the same time! In addition, this book includes a dozen Power Tools that allow you to differentiate your reading instruction for all students. The strategies have been thoroughly tested in grades 2 through 6 and will work well at those levels with little modification. Middle School and High School teachers may also be able to use the strategies, but they may need to modify them slightly for their students or their teaching situation.

Her lessons provide students with activities that encourage creativity and foster success. Students develop a love for reading, while learning to choose readings that are varied. With the new Common Core State Standards, I am excited to implement this workshop again next year because it fits perfectly with these new standards. --Joelle Eden, 4th grade teacher, --Joelle Eden, 4th grade teacher I cannot tell you how much I have LOVED using the Power Reading Workshop program this year. I will confess that I got very nervous right before our state testing, but the results came in last week, and I am thrilled with the test score results! ALL of my students passed, even the ones that receive special services (such as Early Intervention, RTI, etc.). But what really excites me is how many student scores went up from the Meets category to the Exceeds category! Now you have a Forever Fan in me, Laura! --Jenny Owens, 4th grade teacher, GA I was able to begin using your materials and Reader's Workshop beginning 2nd semester last year. By the end of the 3rd quarter my students were hooked, and so was I. The students who were already readers were, of course, thrilled to have time to read books of their choice. The students who had been less enthusiastic readers turned into kids who asked for reading time, chose to read when they had a spare moment, and who groaned when Reader's Workshop time ended. Wow! What a difference! --Jewelia Oswald, KS
