"Changing their physical environment for different types of conferencing is a fabulous idea. Moving the desks would cue the students as to their task for that class period. Also, if different groups are on different steps of the writing process, I…"

"I have had good luck teaching peer conferencing in the past by doing "whole group" peer editing first, to model what a peer edit for a specific purpose will sound like (for example, writing a strong beginning). Scan the writing for the…"

"I am teaching summer school to rising third graders and we just finished 2 days of peer conferencing.  These kiddos need a little more structure/guidance on how to conference.  I would love to have copies of your protocol sheet. If you are…"

"I would like to try this in my first grade room. Right now we are doing peer editing whole group. The child reads the writing to the class and we give three things we liked about the other child's work. Ex. they may like their neat handwriting,…"

"I like the idea of the "wonderings". I have just begun to model this for my students. I hope soon my students will be able to ask "I wonder" questions to their peers."

"I use a protocol sheet with my students. they follow a guide sheet that has them reading their story to the listener 2 times. The first time they are listening for when the movie in their head is really clear. They share this with their author. In…"

Lynne Stewart-Raglin replied to Sally Ann Root's discussion Peer Conferencing
"I like the idea of the post-its. I'm wondering if it might be a good idea to do both the verbal response and the written response. If students had a chance to verbalize the answers to the "wonderings" before writing them in their…"

"My understanding of 'fishbowl" is when students or teacher and student conference together and the rest of the class or group listen in to the conversation ~ as a form of modeling. Thanks for your suggestion. I like it! and I am going to…"

Toni Sadlowski replied to Sally Ann Root's discussion Peer Conferencing
"Last year I started having kids put their names on the board when they were ready to edit and then I would call 4-5 kids to the back table to conference as a group. (Is that what fishbowling is?) Students then read their stories and the other…"

Karen Drexler replied to Sally Ann Root's discussion Peer Conferencing
"There are some great suggestions here. The third grade classroom teacher and myself (Lit. Coach) did a fishbowl demonstration for knee to knee conferencing for revision. After listening in on some conferences, I was pleased with how they did. I love…"

Leslie replied to Sally Ann Root's discussion Peer Conferencing
"I like to give each member of the conference a post-it note to write down open ended questions about the reader's piece. The BIG rule is that the reader cannot answer the questions outloud. Instead, they must answer the question IN their paper.…"

No. I did not create this video. You can find it on Youtube. Like most teachers who lack time and money, I sometimes beg, borrow, and steal (ha). But, I still use it to inspire students in my classroom.
