My Essential Question

Narrowing the focus from my five stones (wonderings), my essential question for professional growth is:

How do I balance choice and structure in Writer’s Workshop to foster passionate writers—no matter what their writing skills and reading capabilities?

Last year I experienced how the power of choice helps to foster passion in reading through the Daily 5 literacy block structure. This year I would like to explore how that choice and independence impacts writing, with the knowledge that teaching the skills of writing is different from teaching and learning the skills of writing.
