Product description

Which Book and Why? is the definitive guide for teachers trying to achieve effective guided reading for children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.

This vital resource helps teachers to choose the right book at the right time for young readers based on focused assessments and explains how guided reading fits with current theoretical understanding of how children learn. It demonstrates how guided reading works in practice, outlines how practice may vary depending on the choice of text, teaching objectives and the needs of the child and provides guidance for school subject leaders and senior managers.

Which Book and Why includes in the accompanying CD-ROM a fully searchable database to support schools and teachers in choosing the most appropriate books at the right level for each group in a class.

Each section of the book offers professional development and self-study activities for teachers – including student teachers, newly qualified teachers, and staff new to guided reading; resources for literacy subject coordinators; and resources for senior management and leadership teams to support the implementation of high-quality and effective guided reading lessons.

Sue Bodman and Glen Franklin are Reading Recovery national leaders at the European Centre for Reading Recovery based at the Institute of Education, University of London.
