The current push for the workshop model in the classroom is hefty. What goes right along with the workshop model is the process of conferring with each kiddo on a regular basis. The process of conferring includes discussing the child’s current book and speak about what thinking strategies they are currently struggling and excelling in.
An app for iOs that has popped up time and time again is the Confer app.
From what I have experienced from the lite version, this app is worth its weight in gold and I look forward to putting the Full version through its paces as soon as I can afford it! HA!
