This 2 page research analysis summary discusses the reasons and steps for using the return sweep/picture guide reading strategy. This works well with all reading curriculums and it coincides with reading interventions commonly used. This is great for new teachers, teachers who are looking for a new strategy, and staff members who need new material for professional development. This strategy has worked with over 100 students on multiple reading levels. This can also help gifted students as they work out more difficult vocabulary and they are not cognitively ready for more advanced reading strategies.
