Guided Writing is Assisted Writing
In the “Next Steps” framework, guided writing is done at the table with the teacher’s support. It is not assigned writing; it is assisted writing. By framing the written response so that it relates to the guided reading text, students extend their comprehension. Guided writing also helps students apply the skills and strategies you have taught during the reading and word study components. If you have taught it, then expect it!
