CONFERRING…
• Guided reading is not
round robin reading!
• The focus is on skills
and strategies for
independent reading of
unfamiliar text.
• Students read the
whole text
independently and
softly to themselves.
Bev Meyeroff
BOOK SELECTION
Teachers select a
specific book for a
guided reading
group that clearly
addresses the reading
strategy students need
to practice AND is at the
students’ instructional level (students knows 90% of
the words).

Word Solving Strategies
• Children need to have a series of strategies
they can use when they do not know a word.
• Not just
“SOUND IT OUT”
• Instead: “What could you try?”
“Try it”
“Try it again”
Bev Meyeroff
WHAT DOES RESEARCH SAY ABOUT
IMPROVING COMPREHENSION?
• Students need to learn what they should think
about while they are reading.
• Students need to learn
how to explain or
describe their
thinking.
Bev Meyeroff
READING IS THINKING!
• Thinking is the essence of reading!
• Reading is more than just
saying words!
Hmmm…
