I like this idea but it is hard to catch the ones that are at different places to get caught up.

I've been to multiple training sessions that focus on the workshop model, and I love it. This makes me excited about teaching. My question is-- how do you make this work with apathetic students? Group work is difficult in my school as a whole, because the majority of our population simply does not care about education. Any ideas?

This is my first time seeing The Workshop Method. Can I ask, how do you deal with due dates? If everyone is in a different place, how do you take grades by a certain time? Just wondering about the logistics. Thanks.

I am a practitioner that uses the workshop model and believe it provides differentiation, explicit teaching, immediate feedback and prompting. This was shown here and it was easy to see the range of students and their engagement. However, one missing part was the Share component of the workshop. All parts are equally important. I am disappointed this was not mentioned and valued.
