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 challenges as you guide groups of readers.
