Guided reading

The sample guided reading lessons include a number of lessons designed for the same text.

This has been purposely developed to illustrate a range of different learning focuses and how they might be taught through the same text. It does not mean that all of these lessons would be taught; rather the selected focus would be based on the learning needs of the students.

The following sample lessons provide examples of how carefully selected texts can be used to support the needs of students.
