You’ve done guided reading a thousand times – so you know what it’s all about, right? Well, maybe not…

Guided reading might seem like a simple strategy for growing good readers to great thinkers who can comprehend. But as Author Jill Eggleton reveals in her three-part series on balanced literacy, effective guided reading instruction requires a knowledge of the appropriate skills for each level, the importance of digging deeper into texts, and effective ways to keep students engaged.

In Part 1 of this webinar series, Jill introduced the idea of balanced literacy being a delicious hamburger where a variety of ingredients work together to create a balanced recipe that leads to reading mastery. She also invited us to take a bite out of the “top bun of our burger” – shared reading and poetry.

During Part 2, Jill moves on to the next ingredients in the hamburger, with a focus on guided reading. She discusses:

  • The instructional goal of guided reading
  • The importance of lesson pace and why quick and “umphy” lessons are essential for lighting the literacy fire
  • How to teach “reading like a reader” vs. “reading like a writer”
  • Best guided reading practices and common instructional pitfalls to avoid
  • And much more

K-5 classroom teachers, reading specialists, literacy coaches, administrators, and librarians as well as K-12 district-level elementary curriculum and instruction directors/coordinators, elementary reading directors/coordinators, and elementary remedial reading directors/coordinators are invited to this recorded session.

This webinar is part of the Balanced Literacy Series:
Balanced Literacy Part 1: A Revised Recipe for Literacy Success
Balanced Literacy Part 2: A Revised Recipe for Guided Reading
Balanced Literacy Part 3: The Secret Ingredient in the Recipe for Literacy Success
