Getting Guided Reading Right

ONE DAY INSET WITH OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL DAY OF DEMONSTRATION SESSIONS

“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with The Literacy Tree. Their personalised approach, catering for the needs of the school, allowed us to effectively gain a deeper understanding of guided reading. Staff were able to observe modelled guided reading sessions which was insightful, purposeful and most importantly, engaging! We hope to work with The Literacy Tree again as this was a very positive experience for all.”

Claire Meares, English Coordinator, St George's International School, Luxembourg

  • Developing effective questioning

  • A range of activities given to promote successful independent group learning

  • Easy to use record keeping systems introduced

  • How to use quality texts by significant children’s authors to support guided reading

Getting Guided Reading Right demonstrates how to effectively use quality texts by significant children’s authors to structure engaging guided reading sessions that support children to become critical readers.  The consultants will model using assessment and record keeping procedures to support questioning, assessment and planning.  Through providing clear structures and exemplified planning, guided reading is demystified.   There is an exploration of what makes good practice, which fits in with current Ofsted inspection framework.

The morning is led by two consultants and takes delegates through the guided reading teaching sequence with exemplar question stems and examples of effective record-keeping.  In the afternoon we split into two groups: one consultant covers the requirements of key stage 2; the other covers the requirements of key stage 1 as we explore the specific objectives through independent activities that support progression.

Teachers will receive recommended book lists, exemplar record-keeping materials and question stems.  For prices, further information or to book now please email The Literacy Tree.
