Stagnation on Reading Performance on SOLs.
Good Scores, but what variables do we have
control over that can help our students
improve?
Almost 90% of staff trained in SPOT,
Phenomenal Reading Support/ESOL….What
about time?
In examining our Language Arts blocks, we
found that a traditional framework for
implementing Guided Reading was prevalent…
Can we examine this????
During a traditional guided reading block, a
classroom had approx. 4 to 5 reading groups.
The classroom teacher met with each group for
20+ minutes to implement a guided reading
lesson.
During that time, students were working on
either independent literacy or group based
activities with no direct supervision.
The neediest of students may be pulled out.
During a 90 to 120 min. literacy block, students
were only directly involved with the teacher for
20 minutes…..Could be a problem!
THE PLAN…
Each teacher/grade level is responsible for their
overall Language arts plan (Classroom ownership)
Grade level Students are strategically grouped by
current literacy need for maximized impact.
All staff are involved (ESOL, READING AND TITLE
ONE SPECIALISTS, HIGHLY TRAINED READING
ASSISTANTS.)
Increased communication and data keeping.
Ongoing communication with administration and all
key players.
Each teacher has a group that
they are responsible for…
Each ESOL teacher has a group
of students. (Mainly of ESOL
students, yet can work with any
student).
Reading Specialists has a group
of lowest ability students.
Reading Instructional Support is
trained in guided reading
techniques and given On grade
level groups.
Highest ability students are
placed together in one
classroom to focus on literacy
extension activities. (Lit. Circles,
Novel Studies, etc.)

Teachers may not want to give up responsibility of teaching
all students.
Will ESOL teachers be doing guided reading all day? What
about the other types of services?
Who is going to keep track of all the information and data?
What about double dips for students?
Can students be responsible for moving from room to
room?
What about the resources?
Won’t this be too noisy?
But, I really liked centers…..
