Practice with Purpose

Literacy Work Stations for Grades 3-6

In her thirty years as an educator, Debbie Diller has closely examined classroom practice, asking "Why? What's the purpose?" Watching primary students work successfully at literacy work stations, she wondered with teachers, "Why don't we have upper-grade students doing this? Could we kick it up a notch?"

In her new book, Debbie shows teachers of grades three to six how to structure their classrooms so that all students can be successful doing meaningful independent work using literacy work stations.
