Guided Reading Coaching Tool.
Byrd, Daphne; Westfall, Polly
Designed as a step book, this resource is intended to be used by all teachers, classroom volunteers, and parents for one-to-one or small group reading instruction. The resource provides a clear focus for guided reading groups and can be used with any text, on any grade level in elementary school. It could be a solution for the growing number of teachers who are being held accountable for students performing below grade-level in reading. Its scripted language and simple questions on each topic (Directionality, Picture Clues, Decoding, One-to-One Correspondence, High-frequency Words, Knowledge and Experience, Fluency, and Comprehension) provide an instructor with key prompts and reading strategies to support the reader. Also includes a reproducible assessment form for identifying students' strengths and weaknesses. (NKA)
