Monitoring Reading and Guided Reading - help needed! Hi, our HT is requesting medium term planning for Guided Reading that gives details of text (incl.pages), introduction, strategy check, questions and next steps (for independent follow-up activity the next day) for every Guided Reading group per half term. Most classes have five GR groups, so this amounts to planning 30 lessons in advance for a six week half term. As Literacy Lead, I am arguing that this is too much (effectively, it is daily planning) and poor practice as it doesn't allow teachers' ongoing assessment to inform their planning. I know HT is requesting these plans as a means of making sure teachers are planning GR effectively, and as subject leader, I also appreciate how difficult it is to monitor Reading. Does anyone have any advice/ideas for good practice in monitoring Reading, particularly Guided Reading, and are there any medium term planning pro formas you could recommend for Guided Reading?
