The Art of Guided Reading

As teachers of reading, we know that to guide our students to success, we must incorporate many important skills and strategies; phonics, comprehension, decoding, and most importantly, the development of a lifelong love of reading. The key to student success lies in building a foundation of knowledge about written language, helping children access their knowledge, and then guiding them in the transfer of this information to text.
Guided reading is a framework for instruction that affords the teachers the opportunity to coach children in how to take action when they encounter a tricky portion in the text. And, perhaps more importantly, by helping children know how to help themselves, children experience success which develops confidence and enjoyment in reading.
