Intro to Guided Reading: A Guide to Small Group Literacy Instruction

(6 Hours) Understanding reading-level expectations for students and how to push students toward higher reading levels is a critical component of reading instruction. Guided reading allows teachers to support students in reading by expanding their ability within and beyond the texts. Participants in this course will learn about foundational reading skills and how they build upon one another, as well as understanding their relationship to a student’s reading level. The training will cover the background and main components of guided reading, as well as how to plan for a guided reading group. Participants will be provided with a variety of strategy ideas and resources they can implement immediately with their small groups.
