Mrs. Quimby - Reading Workshop gr. 7 and 8

Welcome to Reading Workshop.

I am excited to have you in my class.  My goal is to have each of you develop into lifelong readers.

Long-term Learning Targets:

  •   I can engage in a variety of strategies to help me monitor my comprehension before, during, and after I read.
  •   I can analyze what the text says and support my inferences and conclusions through writing and speaking.
  •   I can apply verbal and written strategies for learning new words so that I can better understand what I read and explain what I write.
  •   I can read 18 books by the end of the school year, increasing my stamina and ability to read more complex texts.

 Expectations:
