Abstract

This study explored the following question, “How does teaching to the edges in Writers' Workshop mini lessons, based on student's needs, help impoverished 4th grade bilingual/biliterate students improve their organization?” Data included student work samples, field notes, and interviews. Initial findings suggest mini-lessons are effective tools but only when the lesson targets student needs and attempts to connect with students’ individual interests and experiences.
