There are many important components to writing workshop and decisions to make to create a learning environment that is responsive to individual students and an authentic and supportive writing community for all young writers.  While this work is exciting in that it provides teachers with autonomy and values educators as professionals who engage in research, learning communities, and reflective practices, it also requires support.  There are hundreds of books are articles, videos, and communities that can support teachers on this journey.  Below are some links to support teachers in this endeavor.
