Guided reading is wonderful in theory, but how do you manage it? In this practical resource, two veteran teachers provide a step-by-step guide to guided reading, sharing their lesson plans, management strategies, and assessment tools. They show you how to manage flexible groups, match books to student needs, incorporate phonics, and use assessment to inform instruction. Transcripts of guiding reading sessions and lots of teacher prompts show exactly how guided reading can work for you. Also included is a list of over 650 book titles leveled by reading stage and by Reading Recovery levels. For use with Grades K-3.
