Making a Difference with Guided Reading

I recently visited a wonderful school in Pinellas County, Florida, High Point Elementary. For the past few years, they’ve been implementing “Next Steps” guided reading K-5 using the Literacy Footprints Guided Reading Support System ( Florida uses test scores to evaluate each school. The State assigns a letter grade from A-F. High Point Elementary went from a D to a B grade in just two years. This seven minute video explains how they achieved these amazing results and includes an interview with their Reading Specialist, Karen Cangemi. Grab a cup of tea or coffee and watch this short video. I promise it is worth your time.
