You’ve probably seen it before. A student excels during small-group guided reading time, yet as soon as they are asked to read independently, all of their progress seems to fly out the window. It’s tempting to equate reading success with successful guided reading practice. In fact, many of us forget that students need help navigating the transition to solo independent reading.

In Part 3 of this three-part series, Author Jill Eggleton details the final secret ingredient necessary for creating the perfect balanced reading burger. You might know it as “reciprocal teaching,” but we call it peer reading. Peer reading bridges the gap between small-group guided reading time to literacy success by allowing students to first work cooperatively with their peers to read and comprehend a text, independent of the teacher.

Jill dives deeper into peer reading and describes:

  • What peer reading is and why it works
  • The fundamental differences between solo independent reading and peer reading (group of students reading independent of the teacher)
  • The four critical parts of a successful peer reading session
  • 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 watch this recorded session.

This webinar is part of the Balanced Literacy Series:
