Response to Literature


The workshop provides English Language Arts teachers with training on the teaching of response to literature. From the very simple model of the Cinderella paragraph to popular texts, such as Tuck Everlasting and Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, teachers learn how to instruct students on close reading and writing skills.

 The scaffolding of skills includes Jane’s prewriting strategies, student-centered terminology, color-coding, and Web-off-the-Word™, Jane’s breakthrough approach to commentary and vocabulary development. From terminology to final draft essays, this workshop is designed to assist the English language arts teacher with strategies and techniques that yield successful writers.
