Guided Reading, a teaching approach used with a small group of students, is designed to help individual students read increasingly challenging texts over time. This webinar will focus on the specific elements of a guided reading lesson. Participants will learn how to use meaning, language structure, and visual phonic cues (the three cueing systems) to assist students in successfully engaging with texts.  Practical examples of guided reading lessons utilizing various level texts will be explored.
