The Practical Handbook is essential for implementing the WORKSHOP WAY® in grades 2-8. The basic philosophy and psychology of Workshop Way is presented along with Grace Pilon’s LEARNING CONDITIONS. How to implement Homework (the Self-Concept Vocabulary Project), the social environment and the physical environment of the class is built beginning the first day of school. It describes in detail the first ten days of school for students and how and when to introduce the tasks in the Workshop Schedule of Tasks. Seventh and eight grade teachers in self-contained classrooms find it valuable.
