I've been having success with individual reading conferences. I'd like to do the same with writing, but students seem intimidated/embarrassed to talk about their writing. How do help them?

Google Classroom - you can comment and make suggestions on their writing that they can use (or not). Plus it’s documentation of your conferencing. Still meet with them in person, of course, but you also then have a lead in to the conversation, “remember my comment about including more supporting evidence? Let’s work on that today...”

I throw my students under the bus. By using their Google docs on the overhead and editing with the whole class observing, the "victim" receives full credit. Fair trade agreement first day of school!

I need some strategies! When I introduce a text I use choral reading and whisper reading to guarantee students actually read the text. After an initial read, we go back and annotate to understand the text better. However, I feel like I do all the work. The class doesn’t seem to be thinking about the text. There is a lot of yawning. It’s like they are just waiting to write down what I tell them to. How do I get kids to think about what they are reading? How do I get them to do the work?
