Choose one or two of the teachers portrayed in this workshop program whose classroom you found particularly appealing. What made it so? Were there any behaviors or activities that you would like to incorporate into your own classroom? What and why?

In preparation for Workshop 2, read "Literary Thought and Literate Mind" in Dr. Judith Langer's Envisioning Literature from the Teachers College Press, 1995.
