Rethinking Guided Reading - Sharing Best Practice

Rethinking Guided Reading - Sharing Best Practice

The Science of Reading is an approach to the teaching of reading which adopts practices that are grounded in evidence. These strategies work. This video introduces this approach to the teaching of reading. The presenters analyse the guided reading approach, suggest how to bring in more evidence-based practice and discuss what this looks like in the classroom. Topics covered include phonics, fluency, how we should be teaching comprehension, what students need to be able to infer from text, and how reading in class should always involve writing.
