Reading workshop begins each day with a read aloud.  The teacher reads many books throughout the year, covering a wide range of genres, authors, and styles.  The teacher uses this read aloud to instruct the students.  The lessons include direct instruction and modeling.  Students then do self-selected independent reading.  During their independent reading, the students practice the skills taught in the lesson.  Also, during this independent reading time the teacher conferences with the students on their particular reading material, assesses the students' needs, and provides the student with reading instruction specific to his or her needs.  Writing about reading is emphasized in sixth grade.
