GUIDED INSTRUCTION IN READING

FOR THE JUNIOR STUDENT

Students in Grades 3-5 continue to build upon their abilities to comprehend, think critically, and respond to a variety of texts. The definition of texts has evolved to include more than the printed word. It is imperative that teachers continue to monitor, explicitly teach and give descriptive feedback to students so that skills can be consolidated. Students continue to need time to practice reading for a variety of purposes and build upon fluency skills.
