Reflection: Shared Expectations Writing Workshop Time For Dialogues Continued - Section 2: Workshop Time


For this lesson it is important to keep time in mind. Teachers need to think about time, not just in term of this specific lesson but about continuing for another day or two as students work on these dialogues. As great as it would be to continue writing, students do need time-frames for certain writing pieces. If students do not have a clear structure and limits, they can easily push them.

It really depends on the need of the class as to whether or not more days will be allowed to work on this dialogue. As long as students are being productive and still learning the skills and strategies the objectives ask for, there is no reason not to give them more time. It's important to think about quality of time and not just quantity of time. If time is really becoming an issue to complete this piece, then maybe the length of the piece can be cut down.
