mod-1 through mod-9 in standard Xmonad.  Add shift to move the focused
window to the specified workspace instead.  You can also use ManageHooks to
programmatically assign workspaces to windows; see

Also see http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Image:Xmbindings.png which is still
correct for current Xmonad versions.
