- Language Note:
- This edition in English.
- While reading Debbie Miller's book, Reading with Meaning, or viewing her Happy Reading! video series, one wonders at Debbie's ability to orchestrate a buzzing classroom full of first-graders into a cooperative literacy community. The Joy of Conferring lets us focus in with Debbie and see what happens at the individual level as she conducts reading conferences with her students. Program 2: Three Minutes or Less--Book Selection, Quick Conferences Two of the biggest concerns teachers have about conferring with students are that there is never enough time, and it is difficult to get students to choose the right books for independent reading. How can a teacher provide individual attention to students during daily workshops, when she has twenty five or more children requiring attention? How can teachers help children learn how to select books that provide a balanced diet of genre, topic, and challenging text? Three Minutes or Less"" presents in almost real time the ways Debbie is able to check in with an entire class of students. Many of these conferences are less than a minute long, yet Debbie still manages to find time to instruct, listen carefully, and leave students with challenges.
