Post #1 What is Guided Reading?

Guided Reading is a small group session (3-5 students) that is lead by the teacher. These small lessons allow students to get more support on their specific needs for reading development. Students are grouped with other students who are currently at the same reading level and have similar reading behaviours. Guided reading allows the teacher to help students focus on a goal (reading strategy), practice reading for meaning (fluency and comprehension), and learning to problem solve, all by getting more support from the teacher and working/having discussions with their group. Guided reading sessions only last for about 20 mins and at minimum be scheduled once a week. The ultimate goal of guided reading is to build independent readers.
