Preventing Misguided Reading

Book Description

As you read this book, you will feel like you are having a stimulating professional conversation. You will agree, disagree, question, but most importantly, you will reflect. And after that, you will want to talk. For teachers...looking to think hard about the quality of their guided reading instruction, Preventing Misguided Reading promises to be the perfect study group companion.
— Kim Yaris, Educational Consultant, Plainview, NY

Prevent guided reading from going astray in your classroom! Through the 50 years of collective experience of authors Jan Burkins and Melody Croft, you'll resolve confusion about guided reading and improve your instruction.

The book's six chapters clarify misunderstandings about guided reading instruction in the following areas:

  • The teacher's role and the gradual release of responsibility
  • Instructional reading level
  • Text gradients
  • Balanced instruction
  • Integrated processing
  • Assessment

With 27 strategies, you're sure to find the help you need to work through your own tricky parts as you guide groups of readers.
