Matching Students and Texts for the Development of Fluent Readers
The guided reading instructional strategy provides opportunities to teach small groups of students with similar needs to talk, read, and think purposefully about text. Effective programs use assessment data to identify each studentís starting point for instruction. Teachers play a critical role both in selecting appropriate texts and in teaching, observing, and supporting students as they use strategies modeled in shared reading to read a text independently. Mondo offers leveled-text libraries with fiction and nonfiction books in a range of text types, such as fantasy, historical fiction, folktale, procedural, and persuasive text, explanation, and more, to enable teaching at each studentís precise instructional level.
