Guided Reading is Not Just for Elementary Grades
If you're a middle (or high school) Language Arts teacher, you know there isn't a lot of information available to help you conduct guided reading sessions with your older students... until now. We've spent years creating a research based, hybrid, reading program that combines the best practices of guided reading from the elementary model with the unique needs of adolescent readers.
We are full-time teachers so we understand the challenges middle and high school Language Arts teachers experience.
*We teach approximately 120-150 adolescent students a day.
*We have only 50-55 minutes per class period.
*We work with 200-300 parents, grandparents or various guardians.
*Like most teachers, we continually strive to meet the common core standards.
All of these challenges don't preclude having a strong student-centered literacy program. We've developed a middle and high school guided reading program that is outlined in our book, Guiding Adolescent Readers To Success.
