    If it were me I'd look for an example of a piece of writing to base a guided reading lesson 7 talk about what I hoped the children would get out of the experience, which questions I would focus on & how I would fit that lesson into my med-term plan for such sessions.

    But then if it was me I'd focus on good practice in guided reading and why it is vital in teaching children to both decode and comprehend. I could rabbit on for hours about the benefits of guided reading, done well, in primary schools.

    Two very different ways of approaching this and there will be many more. Do also look at any comments about reading in their latest ofsted and RAP, ask for the RAP if you don't have it and tailor some of your presentation to that.

    I think you will need to find your own angle, one that you feel strongly about, and go in there and wow them with your passion and knowledge. If you feel strongly about what you are saying it is easier to sound clear and confident.

    Good Luck.

    Minnie is a Primary expert, so I'd think carefully about her advice there.
    And don't forget to read the advice inside the interview clickables inside the Welcome thread.
    Good luck

  4. I probably should know this being in Primary but what does RAP stand for? I know SIP and SEF but never come across RAP before. Have googled and just come up with writing a rap as in lines that rhyme....
    Sorry being dim I guess... education and its TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms) drive me mad sometimes LOL

    Got me interested too! i also hadn't come across RAP.
    According to http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/cgi it is a Reading Comprehension strategy for children with learning difficulties. Its a very long document which may well be worth while studying but as you've only a short time it could be summed up as
    ". . . .a paraphrasing strategy, that consists of three steps:
    (a) Read a paragraph,
    (b) Ask myself, &ldquo;What is the main idea and two details?&rdquo; and
    (c) Put the main idea in my own words (Schumaker, Denton, & Deschler, 1984). "
    Thanks for the heads up minnie-more reading to do!
