Conferring with boys

Brand, Max
In this video, Max Brand confers individually with two different boys in this fifth grade classroom, one during writer's workshop, the other during reading workshop. Max demonstrates the key elements of successful literacy conferences with boys, plenty of wait time, homing in on specific text, and discussing reading or writing strategies the student is using. About the author: Max became a teacher because he loves to learn and teaching gives him the chance to learn a ton every day. "Each day is a new experience. No matter what you plan for, the kids take ownership and extend thinking/understanding to fantastic heights." Max is a graduate of Ohio State University and currently teaches fifth grade at Eli Pinney Elementary School. His specialties are word work, working with boys, and learning through discussion. During professional development workshops, he tries to put participants in situations that inspire feelings kids might experience.
