Guiding the Reading Process is a no-nonsense exploration of the latest and most successful approaches to teaching reading. This highly readable book sorts through the mass of information available and gives teachers practical strategies and techniques that will support elementary students on their journey toward becoming independent readers.
This comprehensive book outlines the specifics of dealing with common reading problems, as well as innovative ways of helping students cope with individual challenges to reading. Teachers will discover many effective ways they can work with young readers in one-to-one conferences, in collaborative groups, and as a community of readers.
Among the tools that will help teachers plan, modify and add to their reading instruction, this book includes:
- descriptions of young readers with different abilities
- stages of reading and corresponding indicators
- mini-lessons on reading techniques - from phonics to literature discussions
- outlines and checklists to help assess, monitor, and report reading progress
- booklists and computer programs that promote reading success.
Guiding the Reading Process is a valuable resource for both new and experienced teachers.
