Balancing small groups and conferences is essential for transferring learning from lessons and units, and it's one of the trickiest tasks for teachers. Dana Murphy explains how she works toward balance in her classroom, weighing everything from the timeline of the unit to the intensity of the minilesson. (This article was first published in 2020.)

Tara Barnett and Kate Mills give guidance and support for varying the structures and routines in literacy workshops. (This article was first published in 2020.)
