Description  

The Guided Comprehension Model is a step-by-step teaching framework that encourages students to become active, strategic readers by providing explicit strategy instruction, opportunities for engagement, and a variety of texts and instructional settings. This book has everything you need to use the Guided Comprehension Model effectively with your students. Part I introduces new ideas for teaching Guided Comprehension and updated resources that support its evidence base. Part II features lessons and includes planning forms, teacher commentaries and think-alouds, samples of student work, and theme-based resources. Suggestions for differentiating instruction, including teaching English learners, are integrated throughout.

Helpful appendixes offer teaching ideas, new classroom applications, reproducible blackline masters, forms for organizing and managing Guided Comprehension centers and routines, literature response prompts, leveled book resources, and assessment forms.
