This post is the first in a series over the next few weeks that will explore the common approaches to reading instruction including Read Alouds, Shared Reading, Small-Group Shared Reading, Guided Reading, and Independent Reading. By no means is the order of these posts going to follow the most logical of sequences that you may follow in your classroom, however eventually all areas will be covered.
This week's post is focused on the group work aspect of reading because in today's version of public education, we the teachers are faced with an ever-expanding diversity of learners who all need to become successful readers. One of the ways to keep our sanity is to delve deeper into the small group teaching approaches to literacy instruction.
