  • This was an informative and excellent workshop for classroom teachers or anyone engaged in the reading process with students. Donalyn shares her insight and experiences as she struggled herself with providing meaningful reading conferences for her students. Her analogy of painting the Brooklyn Bridge was eye openingl for me and the forms she shares are user friendly. But, don't let that fool you! They are powerful in their simplicity and provide relevant data for every student.
