Overview

Among the many changes to sweep American literacy education has been a move toward whole class instruction. Nonetheless, children still bring to literacy a wide range of experiences and competencies. How, then, might teachers best support a literate community yet still meet the needs of individual readers? For Fountas and Pinnell, the answer lies in guided reading, which allows children to develop as individual readers within the context of a small group. Their new book is the richest, most comprehensive guided reading resource available today and the first systematic offering of instructional support for guided reading adherents.

Guided Reading was written for K-3 classroom teachers, reading resource teachers, teacher educators, preservice teachers, researchers, administrators, and staff developers. Based on the authors' nine years of research and development, it explains how to create a balanced literacy program based on guided reading and supported by read aloud, shared reading, interactive writing, and other approaches. While there is an entire chapter devoted solely to the process by which children become literate, every chapter clearly presents the theoretical underpinnings of the practices it suggests. Also included are guidelines for:

  • observation and assessment
  • dynamic grouping of readers
  • creating sets of leveled books
  • selecting and introducing books
  • teaching for strategies
  • classroom management.

Best of all, there are well over 2,500 leveled books in the Appendixes, along with many other reproducible resources that teachers will use for years to come.

"Good first teaching is the foundation of education and the right of every child," assert the authors. With the publication of this book, educators themselves will find the foundation in reading skills instruction they so rightly deserve.

    This book was prescribed by the Principal

    This is the book of choice by an entire school. I saw that all the teachers use this book, and the principal set dates for the teachers to be at a certain stage of the book. Reading & Technology are so important. This will help me form great reading mini-lessons.

    A MUST HAVE FOR NEW TEACHERS

    I was given this book to read by a curriculum resource teacher in an elementary school. She told me to memorize this book, it will be the most important book I ever read. The CRT also told me that I will need almost all the information in this book when I go for a job interview. I am purchasing my own coping today!!!! It is great!!

    Must have for all new teachers.

    If you are a new teacher or new to early elementary school, then you must have this book. If you cannot afford it, see if your school will fund it.
