The School Leaders' Edition: March 13th-19th
Guided Reading Note Taking
At RMS, Tanisha, created a guided reading note taking tool. This is both a good solution to this potential problem and user friendly for all teachers. Since the tool is aligned to the STEP skills that students need at each level, it is easier to anticipate what may hold students back from passing the next STEP level and to plan next steps.
At RMS, teachers take notes as they listen to students in the During reading and Comprehension Conversation portion of Guided Reading.
If you are curious about how this tool was introduced at RMS or how this could be implemented at your own campus please reach out to RMS SLs or the Humanities team.
The work that students are doing throughout the lesson is definitely the right preparation students need for the SBAC.
