Guided Reading: Implementing Research Based Small Group Reading Instruction K-5
Limited Capacity seats available

Effective small group reading instruction involves accelerating reading progress through close, careful observation of students' reading behaviors and utilizing prescriptive strategy based comprehension instruction. In this session we will focus on strategic reading instruction that focuses on students reading increasingly challenging texts with accuracy, deep comprehension and fluency, not simply moving students through levels.
