Guided Reading: What's New, and What's Next?

In an era of change in education, the time is right to refocus attention on guided reading practices. Guided reading remains an anchor in classroom literacy programs, but how has it changed with the new shifts in education? In this book, Dr. Michael P. Ford provides a practical resource for guided reading. He explains how it evolved, why it's still important, how to fit it into a comprehensive literacy program, how to select texts, how to assess and support students, and how to position it for intervention. Also included is an Appendix with a listing of recommended guided reading books.

"Thorough and complete. Ford's book on guided reading gives experienced and novice teachers a wealth of ideas about how to best implement guided reading. One of the most important features of the book is that Ford provides the why behind the how, helping teachers understand why they do what they do." - Dr. Michael F. Opitz

Dr. Becky McTague, Assoc. Professor of Language and Literacy - Roosevelt University and co-author of The New Balanced Literacy School

"…a wonderful resource as well as an asset for any teacher’s professional library. Inexperienced teachers will gain an understanding as to how to get guided reading going in their classroom and experienced teachers will find helpful support, especially for struggling early readers. As an experienced consumer of research I found this book grounded in solid research about primary guided reading and my pre-service primary teachers found practical ideas for practice as well as some inspiration. I think both types of teacher will find nuggets of knowledge to stratify intellectual and concrete challenges to this subject." - Dr. Becky McTague, Assoc. Professor of Language and Literacy
