I know firsthand that guided reading really works. In my school district my classroom was designated as an observation classroom for best practices in guided reading, learning centers, differentiated instruction and cooperative learning. I was observed by both experienced teachers and first year teachers district-wide on a yearly basis during guided reading instruction and my literacy block. (See preview for additional slides)
