Conferring with students can feel intimidating and overwhelming. This course teaches educators how to confer with students about reading that allows for clearer access to one-on-one, in-the-moment teaching and learning. It provides practical, reflective, student-centered teaching moves that you can use to develop an intentional, joy-filled conferring practice. It enables teachers and students to learn to break down and utilize the qualities that enable good writing: elaboration, voice, structure, conventions, and focus. To Know and Nurture a Reader provides the knowledge and skills it takes to confer well, which gives the students the confidence to think of themselves as readers and writers.
