Conferring can be difficult because there are so many things to manage. I tried to write a book with practical tips for all of us who have struggled with time and paper management over the years. Sections in each chapter provide tips for working with English Language Learners. There are two chapters on peer conferring, and one is based on the kind of talk that happens in the “real world” of writing workshops: the peer review conference. I will blog about what that looks like very soon. Meanwhile, happy conferring!
