Use Guided Reading to differentiate instruction, meet individual needs and accelerate the pathway to proficient independent reading.

Whole group lessons provide an ideal opportunity to model a strategy. They’re also an efficient way to teach your State Reading Standards. But GR provides an opportunity to provide targeted and scaffolded instruction by placing students in small, temporary, needs-based groups. By using daily observations and formative assessments such as running records, you can target the skills and strategies your students need to learn next so that every child becomes a better reader.
