Editorial Review:
The breakout success of guided reading comes as no surprise to most teachers. But is there only one way to do guided reading? Must teachers follow a defined set of guidelines? Michael Opitz and Michael Ford's response is an emphatic "No." With Reaching Readers, they offer a second-generation model of guided reading - one that urges teachers to expand their vision and presents alternative practices.

Reaching Readers originates from the idea that there are at least five considerations that need to be thought through for meaningful guided reading to occur:

  • Roles and Goals: There are many different guided reading experiences, each one calling for different ways to group children and structure what happens. Opitz and Ford help you think through your roles and goals to obtain a broader perspective.
  • Assessment and Grouping: Good instruction begins with assessing, which leads to grouping decisions. Reaching Readers addresses your concerns about size, number, and group members, including how to use the results of assessment strategies and form groups.
  • Texts: There are many different types of texts and several ways to match texts to readers. Readers will find here suggestions for using each type of text as well as sample titles.
  • Instruction: It's essential that each guided reading lesson be strategically planned. Opitz and Ford visit nine different classrooms that show purposeful guided reading experiences in action to help you develop your own instruction.
  • Organization and Management: One adult with several children requires some kind of organization and management plan. The book presents ideas for keeping children meaningfully engaged, freeing you to interact with small guided reading groups with minimal interruptions.
Opitz and Ford's goal is to make guided reading an even more effective and efficient instructional technique. With this book, you can help ensure that all students reach their full potential as independent, lifelong readers.
