GUIDED READING

Guided Reading

Guided Reading can be difficult to understand because it can be different for different groups of kids. Our kids are quite diverse, so our teaching needs to be diverse in order to meet their needs. In general, Guided Reading is a chance to work on: Reading Comprehension Strategies Verbal Skills and Discussion Vocabulary Decoding and Fluency

But for different students, on a given day, you might emphasize one or two skills over the others. You can also focus on helping students understand Text Features, Summarization, Sequence, Character Analysis, and other TEKS skills.

Before, During, and After

Guided Reading lessons should be planned in three segments: 1. Before the Reading OPTIONS: Picture Walk, Predictions, Difficult Vocabulary, Personal Connection 2. During Reading OPTIONS: Asking Comprehension Questions, Discussing Text Features, Pointing Out Vocabulary 3. After Reading OPTIONS: Building Fluency through Repeated Reading, Summarization, TEKS Skill

What Are My Other Students Doing?

Other students MUST be kept busy with engaging and challenging work. There needs to be accountability for the work they are doing. The teacher should be able to see at a glance that all students are working. Centers are appropriate even for older students. Struggling readers can practice the text they are going to read before they come up to the Guided Reading table.

Guided Reading

Before

Teacher Select text at instructional level of lowest student in the group Provide book introduction Discuss text features with students Allow students to make predictions about type of text and author's purpose

During

Students Each have a copy of the text Read independently Interact with text (take notes, underlines, use post-its, etc.) Request help when needed Teacher Observes the readers' behaviors Takes anecdotal records Scaffolds as needed Checks comprehension Facilitates discussion

After

Students Have book discussions Make connections May complete graphic organizer

Guided Reading Grades 3-5

Guided reading is small group instruction with students who read the same text that is on their instructional reading level (moderate challenge). Guided reading is an opportunity for students to read material and practice authentic reading strategies with support from the teacher.

Groups: Are homogeneous by reading level or for skill work Are flexible and change as you assess progress and needs Are met with everyday if the members are struggling readers Are the first level of intervention for struggling students

Teacher Role Before Reading

Select text that is on the group's instructional level Prepare text introduction that will help readers access and use all sources of information, keeping in mind the demands of the text and the knowledge, experience, and skills of the readers Choose 3-5 high utility Tier II vocabulary words from the text and create kid friendly definitions to each word Decide whether to introduce vocabulary before reading or have students use context clues to determine the meaning of the word during reading Set purpose for reading Leave some opportunities for students to independently solve problems QtA in Guided Reading: Segment the text and write queries for students to think about and answer as they independently read the text Queries should encourage responses along the three levels of comprehension Provide a way for students to record their thinking and answers to queries to be discussed after reading

Student Role

Engage in conversation about the text Understand the purpose for reading the text Access prior knowledge Make connections between the new text and others they have read

During Reading

Listen to students individually read a segment orally (not round robin Assist with problem solving at difficulty Interact with students to reinforce the ongoing construction of meaning Take anecdotal notes and running records on a regular basis

Read the text to themselves (silently) unless reading segment to the teacher Monitor comprehension and use a strategy such as rereading when comprehension breaks down Check predictions and react personally to the text Raise questions and make comments to clarify confusion and expand understanding QtA in Guided Reading: Stop and answer each query using the text to justify thinking

After Reading

Talk about the text with the students and encourage them to talk with each other Encourage participation of all students Encourage students to respond using complete sentences Invite personal response Return to text for teaching opportunities such as finding evidence or to point out a problem solving strategy Assess understanding Engage students in a written response (optional- you might not choose to do this every time) QtA in Guided Reading: Talk about the text with the students and encourage them to talk with each other about queries Revisit vocabulary words and provide kid friendly definitions Encourage active use of vocabulary words in writing and speaking

Participate in discussion of the text Revisit the text at points of problem solving as guided by the teacher Revisit the text for justification of thinking QtA in Guided Reading: Participate in discussion of queries by sharing thinking and providing evidence using the text

Planning Guided Reading Reflection Questions

When planning a guided reading lesson: Consider: What will you address in the introduction? How will you invite students to access background information? What text organization characteristics or text features will you point or discuss? Which concepts/vocabulary will you cover in advance, and which will you leave for students to discover? For the fiction book, how will you break up the reading? What are the natural stopping points? For the nonfiction text, how does the author organize and present ideas? Determine some possible discussion points to introduce when you revisit the text after reading. Consider: How can you help students relate ideas in the text to their personal, world, and literary knowledge? How can you help students summarize and synthesize information from the text? How can you help students think about the text? How can you help students think beyond the text?
