Guided reading is part of a balanced literacy program, and is the bridge between whole group reading and independent reading. It helps students gain the confidence and skills to go from reading with the teacher to reading on their own. Guided reading also allows for students who read at different speeds and abilities to work in small groups with students of a similar reading level.
