EEDUC 6045 Guided Reading: Differentiating Literacy Instruction (3-8)

Participants will learn how to observe and assess the reading behaviors of intermediate and middle school students; form flexible groups; analyze and select appropriate texts; and plan guided reading lessons that address the needs of individual readers within the group. Participants will learn about the complex nature of the reading process and consider how each element of a guided reading lesson presents opportunities for teaching and learning that will support the varying needs of students, including those whose first language might not be English.
