"My colleagues and I are looking for protocol sheets to guide our second graders during peer conferencing. Our grade level goal is to make our writing workshop time be as efficient as possible and of course, for our students to become better…"
"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…"

"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
