Amazing! Kindergarten Guided Reading - After watching this video, it's obvious that she has done a lot of prep work before video taping this group. The students know her cute little songs and sayings. She is a Kindergarten teacher, but these kids have some pretty intense vocabulary going on in their guided reading group. Great video! by marquita

The goal of close reading is to gradually release responsibility to students, a shift from the teacher modeling close reading strategies to students employing strategies independently. The role of the teacher is to make these strategies visible to students through thinking aloud, modeling, and posting anchor charts for reference. In this article are some strategies that set the stage for students to interact with a text through an independent analysis and group discussion with peers. by graciela
