Implementation with Fidelity

Whenever we try a new strategy or practice, it’s important to implement it as designed to ensure we get the best results. The same is true when utilizing the guided reading lesson formats designed by Jan Richardson.
The implementation checklists that follow were created to make sure teachers include all of the components of Jan Richardson’s guided reading plans and focus on the amount of time recommended for each component. 
Teachers can use these checklists as a self-assessment to set goals and to ensure they are using the format with fidelity. Administrators and coaches can use them as they observe guided reading lessons to structure what they are seeing in the framework of Jan Richardson’s guided reading plans.
