We have different approaches dependent on reading level. Level 1 readers are very much teacher led: read around the group, discuss together with teacher posing L1 questions. Level 2 readers do independent reading whilst teacher listens in, after teacher does general introduction, gives tricky words, finally L2 questions at the end of the session. Higher L2/L3 readers do independent reading in one session with peer discussion about it when finished, then in next session discuss with teacher and teacher does L3 questions. Our guided reading sets are all bookbanded and we know what we are looking for children to achieve in each colour level. It is still a work in progress - we may change a bit for the mid groups.
