Outcomes: Participants will be introduced to the idea of Whole Class Guided Reading and compare the approach with the traditional ‘carousel’ approach. They will have the opportunity to observe ‘live’ teaching and have a follow up discussion with the teachers about the sessions. A suggested planning format will be shared that can be adapted to cover non-fiction and poetry. We will share many ideas during the day than can be used in any format of Guided Reading.
Target audience: KS2 teachers – Head Teachers and Senior Leaders – English Leaders and anyone considering a move to WCGR.
Draft plan of the day:
