Workshop 7. Many Students: Many Voices and Abilities

Envisionment-building classrooms provide a balance of quiet times for reading and less-quiet times for discussing, writing, and creating projects related to that reading.Background Reading

In preparation for Workshop 7, read "Literature for Students the System Has Failed" in Dr. Judith Langer's Envisioning Literature from the Teachers College Press, 1995.

A compendium of resources and articles about Dr. Langer's research and the envisionment-building process can be accessed from the National Research Center on English Learning and Achievement's Web site.

Explore the "Envisionment-Building resources" to access articles and guides to fostering literary communities in your own classroom.
