Abstract/Notes: During the 2012-2013 school year, Metropolitan Montessori School, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, a school for 3-to-12-year-olds, adopted a reading workshop approach. This decision resulted from several recognized needs. One need was to provide teachers with a strong, clear framework for literacy instruction, particularly at the emergent reading level. In other subject areas, such as math and cultural subjects, the approach was fairly consistent from classroom to classroom. Teachers used shared language to discuss students' progress (e.g., Jimmy has just started the stamp game; Lara is struggling with dynamic addition), but they did not have similar language when discussing children's progress in reading. Another need was to support not just decoding and phonics, but that other crucial arm of reading development: reading comprehension. Teachers had long noticed that there were gaps between the words that children were able to read and the meaning they were deriving from their reading. This gap appeared increasingly pronounced as children became older and expectations became higher. This article describes how and why the reading workshop approach was undertaken, key principles of the workshop, how it works with the Montessori curriculum, and what was learned while integrating the approach.
