Like Junior Great Books, Guided Reading is an important component of a robust, high-quality literacy program. By adding powerful questions to your Guided Reading program, you can ensure that your students are developing their reading and thinking skills while also becoming more engaged, enthusiastic readers. Using powerful questions in your Guided Reading discussions helps students:
- Build their critical thinking skills
- Develop their higher-order listening and speaking skills
In addition, using powerful questions as prompts for Guided Reading writing exercises increases the coherence of your students’ learning across the curriculum.
This teacher resource:
