Yr 4 Stories That Raise Issues Teachers' Resource for Guided Reading

Yr 4 Stories That Raise Issues Teachers' Resource for Guided Reading

Author: Ann Webley, Karina Law Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/06/2006

Accompanying the specially-commissioned White Wolves fiction range, which has been written in consultation with the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education, each of these books contains five literacy lesson plans and five photocopiable activities for each of the three graded story books in the Year 3 and 4 strands. The activities are designed for guided reading sessions in schools, in which each class is divided into groups of children with a comparable level of reading experience. The teacher spends time helping each group to negotiate a book specially chosen to match their experience level, and also sets the children literacy activities which they can work through by themselves. Guided reading helps children develop strategies for reading which enable them to become independent readers.
