Okay...I am earning credit hours for my Rank 1 (in KY it is the program above your Master's Degree) and setting up a research project on comparing the effectiveness on reading with classes doing Literacy Workstations (think Debbie Diller) vs. Independent Reading with Reading Response Journals. Does anyone know any books or articles about comparing the two?? I personally believe in Independent Reading with RRJ but I always feel guilty when other classrooms have fun workstations for students and my students are reading. (I assign Independent Reading with RRJ while I work with small guided reading groups) Any advice, suggestions, or personal preferences would be greatly appreciated. Which one do you think is more beneficial?
