Guided reading - Developing reading comprehension skills

By Janet Castrejón, MA

Guided reading is a teaching technique that trains beginning readers to use reading comprehension strategies. Children practice using these strategies under adult guidance so that they will be able to use them independently later. These strategies also help children better understand when reading books in a foreign language.

Before reading

During reading

After reading

After reading a book once with an adult through guided reading using these strategies, the child could re-read the book independently on another day.
