Guiding Readers Book Study

After hosting last summer's book study on The Book Whisperer I knew it was something I wanted to make a part of every summer. I learned so much from reading the book, reading the posts and sharing my own thoughts!

This year's book will be Guiding Readers: Making the Most of the 18 Minute Guided Lesson by Lori Jamison Rog. 

In February I went to Reading for the Love of It and was able to hear Lori speak in person. It was a great experience and I immediately went to her publisher's booth and bought the book. Due to all the time constraints of teaching and life I haven't been able to crack open the book yet...but summer starts in 14 days!

The TBA authors will be hosting the chapters and sharing their thoughts and ideas, plus I will be hosting a linky party for each chapter so that all of you can join in on the posting fun.

To help you decide if you want in on all this book study goodness here are a few links:

Pembroke Publisher's Website- you can also buy an e-book version from the publisher if you wish.
**UPDATE- apparently people are having trouble finding this book on Amazon but you can also order a paper copy directly from the publisher**

The fun starts on June 18th! Get your copy of the book soon.

My guided reading lessons are in need of an "upgrade" and I am excited to learn some new strategies.
Thanks for organizing this, Beth!

Going to order my book soon! Thank you for posting! I am always looking for new ideas!

YEA! I can't wait to get this started. I will be teaching history next year instead of reading, but I know that lack of comprehension gets in the way in content areas so this is going to be helpful! :) I signed up to host one of the later chapters-the one on non-fiction. :)


Beth said...

is there a way to print out the one you can read online? I dont want to pay for one but I want a hard copy ;) I am news to guided reading so I hope to soak up all the tips and great ideas from you all! :) This was only my first yr in 1st grade, so now I am looking to tweak some things :)

Beth said...

I am not sure but I doubt it! Publishers are in the business of making money so I can't imagine that they would allow you to print it off. Perhaps if you buy the e-book version then you can? The e-book version is slightly cheaper if that's your worry.
