The Reading-Writing-Research Workshop
Ensuring that students graduate college and career ready means we have to engage them in reading, writing, and speaking the language of our disciplines–a majority of the time they are in our classrooms. The workshop approach structures time, texts, and activities so that students learn by doing what they are learning how to do.
An Introduction to the RWR Workshop in HPL
Engaging with appropriately challenging texts across the disciplines requires easy access to texts that teach your content.
TextDepot is our free, collaborative repository of texts aligned to science and social studies learning standards. We help you build text sets to engage students in reading and writing across the curriculum. Even better, you get to access text sets built by other teachers who teach what you teach. When folks collaborate, the collection grows!
Need help to build a text set you don’t see in our collection? Contact Rachel, our curator. She’s here to help you.
The Big Books Project in TextDepot provides free, teacher-created big books aligned with science and social studies standards for grades K-2. Download big books for free. Project them onto your Promethean board. Print out multiple copies to add to your text sets. Want to write a big book for our collection? We'd love that. Find out how.
We know that we learn how to do anything by doing it. And we learn to do things well by doing them a lot. Students learn how to learn in academic settings by using the New Norms to engage productively in reading, writing, and researching so they can make sense of complex disciplinary texts across the curriculum.
