Guided Reading is reading instruction guided by the teacher in a small group of 6 students or less. This class will focus on instruction for dual language students in Grades 4 - 8.
When: 6 weeks – June 10 – July 26 (Break week of July 1)
What: Enjoy some summer reading and planning for the next school year online and feel more comfortable with authentic Spanish literature. We will read two-chapter books one transitional level chapter book and one intermediate level chapter book. The objectives of the class are to grow your understanding of authentic Spanish literature, the continuo de lectoescritura bilingüe, and what to listen for during conversations with students.
Each week you will be assigned to read a part of the book. One 15-minute lesson will be posted on Mondays about nuances of each text and things to consider to scaffold for comprehension. The other 15-minute lesson will explore the cultural aspects of the literature and text complexity. During the week your assignment will be to read the book, engage in conversations about the books, and comment on the lessons.
