Benefits and challenges of Readers’ Workshop are also presented in this review. Research for this review has been gathered from professional articles and books about literacy and Readers’ Workshop. Choice, time and flexibility have been found as key elements in an effective Readers’ Workshop. The benefits of Readers’ Workshop in a primary classroom outweigh the challenges of implementing such a strategy.
