Within guided reading lessons teachers are able to help intermediate grade students learn and apply new skills and strategies and think about text in new ways – all in the highly supportive context of small group instruction. The strategies that are demonstrated in this course are intended to expand teachers’ instructional repertoire, generate discussion/sharing of additional appropriate strategies, and, when applied to students' own reading, boost their comprehension of text.
You will learn how to:
- Make optimum use of word sorts, anticipation guides and other powerful reading comprehension
tools to boost students’ understanding of what they read
- Transition students’ reflection and discussion from lower-level recall into higher levels of thought
- Maximize the value of lesson introductions by activating prior knowledge and helping students construct connections to the upcoming text
- Challenge students to think about text in new ways
- Engage students in meaningful interactions with text before, during and after small group reading instruction
