More Than Guided Reading eBook
Guided reading provides opportunities to teach students the strategies they need to learn how to read increasingly challenging texts, but Cathy Mere, a kindergarten teacher and literacy coach, found that she needed to find other ways to help students gain independence. In More Than Guided Reading, Cathy shares her journey as she moved from focusing on guided reading as the center of her reading program to placing children at the heart of literacy learning. By changing the structure of the day, she was able to allow time for whole-class focus lessons, conferences, and opportunities to share ideas, as well as reading from self-selected texts using the strategies, skills, and understandings acquired in reader's workshop.
