Small group instruction is key to putting students on the pathway to successful independent reading and deep comprehension. The intimate setting allows teachers to work closely with a group of students reading at approximately the same level to effectively and continuously evaluate reading, diagnose challenges, and support new reading skills and growth. In this edWebinar, learn simple strategies to support students during small-group instruction, helping them grow as independent readers.
The recorded edWebinar will help educators:
- Understand their students, their strengths, and their challenges
- Differentiate instruction for the range of readers in a classroom
- Guide readers in various learning contexts
- Inform instruction – how guided reading complements and enhances independent reading and whole-class instruction
This recorded edWebinar will be of particular benefit to kindergarten through elementary teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
