Description

Feeling exhausted after guided reading? Are you working tirelessly while your students aren’t even breaking a sweat? Do you ever wonder if other teachers feel the same way you do about guided reading—that it’s not working the way you think it should? You are not alone. There seems to be much confusion surrounding guided reading—the term even means something different from school to school.

Now you can turn to the 50 years of collective experience of authors Jan Burkins and Melody Croft to prevent guided reading from going astray in your classroom. Jan and Melody present personal clarifications, adaptations, and supports that have helped them work through their own tricky parts as they guide readers. The book’s six chapters each clarify a misunderstanding about guided reading instruction in the following areas:

  • The teacher’s role and the gradual release of responsibility
  • Instructional reading level
  • Text gradients
  • Balanced instruction
  • Integrated processing
  • Assessment

With 27 strategies, you’re sure to find the help you need to work through your own challenges as you guide groups of readers.
