You’ve done guided reading a thousand times – so you know what it’s all about, right? Well, maybe not…
Guided reading might seem like a simple strategy for growing good readers to great thinkers who can comprehend. But as Author Jill Eggleton reveals in her three-part series on balanced literacy, effective guided reading instruction requires a knowledge of the appropriate skills for each level, the importance of digging deeper into texts, and effective ways to keep students engaged.
In Part 1 of this webinar series, Jill introduced the idea of balanced literacy being a delicious hamburger where a variety of ingredients work together to create a balanced recipe that leads to reading mastery. She also invited us to take a bite out of the “top bun of our burger” – shared reading and poetry.
During Part 2, Jill will move on to the next ingredients in the hamburger, with a focus on guided reading. She will discuss:
- The instructional goal of guided reading
- The importance of lesson pace and why quick and “umphy” lessons are essential for lighting the literacy fire
- How to teach “reading like a reader” vs. “reading like a writer”
- Best guided reading practices and common instructional pitfalls to avoid
- And much more
There will be time for Jill to answer your questions after her presentation. K-5 classroom teachers, reading specialists, literacy coaches, administrators, and librarians as well as K-12 district-level elementary curriculum and instruction directors/coordinators, elementary reading directors/coordinators, and elementary remedial reading directors/coordinators are invited to this live, interactive session.
