We’ve been digging into the art of conferring as part of our podcast exploration of Writer’s Workshop. It’s been an amazing journey, learning from different educators and finding the little gems that everyone has honed in their own classroom practice. Today’s episode featured a session focussing on coaching conferring…and it was excellent. It’s one of those concepts that I think is so important in any part of the classroom. When we pair students up to confer with each other it’s so important that we coach them on how to do this successfully.
