This glimpse into a first-grade reading workshop features individual and group instruction plus a number of activities, including guided oral reading and assessment.
This video of a reading workshop in primary was originally part of the professional development video series, "Assessing Primary Readers," produced by KET in 2003, and also in the multimedia professional development resource Literacy Strategies in Action produced in 2006 by KET in collaboration with the Kentucky Department of Education as part of the Reading First initiative.
This video features the daily reading workshop in the first-grade class of Felicia Cumings-Smith at Blake Elementary in Louisville, Ky. Reading workshop includes individual and group instruction, individual reading and book sharing as well as guided oral reading and informal assessment.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
