If you haven't checked out the videos on the Teachers College Vimeo site, you need to do so. I've watched two excellent teachers (first and second grade) as they engage readers during Reading Workshop. Even for old hands like myself, it's good to watch another teacher as they work through mini-lessons, shared readings, and conferences. Rightfully so, we complain about the lack of time to watch other teachers practice our craft. With these free videos, we can watch other teachers in their classrooms without leaving our own class. I would recommend watching the pre and post conference videos as well because you get to hear the thinking of the teachers. These videos are a great resource for working with beginning teachers and/or teachers new to that particular grade level. Below is a mini-lesson from 2nd grade.
