EEDUC 6047 Guided Reading: Responsive Teaching (K-2)

Participants will build a strong understanding of reading as a complex process and learn how to help students become more proficient readers through differentiated instruction in small, guided reading groups. They will use running records of oral reading behaviors to study a child’s progress in reading over time and consider the role that a gradient of texts and matching books to readers has on student progress. Participants will analyze assessment data to form flexible groups, select appropriate texts, and plan guided reading lessons for effective literacy instruction of diverse students.
