Responsive Guided Reading in Grades K-5: Simplifying Small-Group Instruction
Berne, Jennifer; Degener, Sophie C.
Guided reading is a staple of elementary literacy instruction, yet planning and conducting reading groups can be time consuming and challenging. This hands-on book presents an innovative approach to guided reading that is manageable even for teachers who are new to small-group, differentiated reading instruction. Numerous classroom examples illustrate how to organize groups and select suitably challenging materials, structure group sessions, provide scaffolding and cues while listening to students read, and balance small-group with whole-class instruction. Special features include scheduling aids and lists of common cues for beginning and older readers, as well as suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter. This book is divided into three parts. Part I, What Is Responsive Guided Reading?, includes: (1) Introduction; (2) The Role of Responsive Guided Reading in the Balanced Literacy Block; and (3) A Detailed Look at Responsive Guided Reading. Part II, Teacher Cueing in Responsive Guided Reading Groups, includes: (4) Prompting Beginning Readers during Responsive Guided Reading; and (5) Prompting Fluent Readers during Responsive Guided Reading. Part III, Getting Started with Responsive Guided Reading: Practical Considerations, includes: (6) The First Month of School: Establishing Routines; (7)Meaningful Activities for the Rest of the Class; (8) Assessing Students for Placement in Responsive Guided Reading Groups; (9) Moving Students in and out of Groups; and (10) Selecting Materials for Responsive Guided Reading Groups.
