In his latest book, A Closer Look at Guided Reading, David Hornsby (Australian Educator and Consultant) describes clearly and succinctly what guided reading involves, and gives practical and authoritative advice on how to incorporate guided reading into a literacy program. In a guided reading session, the teacher helps children use strategies they already know to enable them to read an unfamiliar text individually and with success. It is a powerful teaching procedure that helps children to effectively develop their reading skills and strategies. It encourages children to become independent readers who choose to read for many different purposes throughout their lives. This book has something to offer all teachers, from those finding out about guided reading for the first time to those who are familiar with the principles, but who would like additional practical advice on how to use guided reading sessions in their classrooms.
