What is the right text for Guided Reading?
In our view, Guided Reading provides the opportunity for the reader to flex their reading muscles, to appropriate all the reading strategies that they have been taught or have picked up on intuitively, in an authentic reading context.
That means that choosing the 'right text' becomes pivotal. To maximise that precious guided reading time the text you choose should be 'just right' with just the right amount of challenge to keep the reader in the 'Hard Fun' zone but not the 'Hard' zone where they are overwhelmed and lose heart.
