One of the most important and underutilized instructional practices for reading comprehension is strategy groups. This targeted practice can be used with all students to give them confidence and independence for applying strategies while reading. That’s the point right?
I actually accidentally stumbled upon using this method while teaching fourth grade and it soon became an intentional part of my reading block. In fact, I was conducting strategy groups whenever I had the chance! If you’re finding that there are gaps to fill following your whole group lessons, I suggest you try incorporating strategy groups into your day.
In this episode I share:
How to fit strategy groups into your reading block
Steps to begin using strategy groups
Tips to choosing students for strategy groups
The 4 T’s of strategy groups
