Welcome to The Guided Reading Teacher. My name is Jennifer Shorter. I am a teacher, probably just like you. I have been teaching for 12 years and for the past 6, I've only taught Reading, Writing, and Grammar. With all of my previous training in teaching Reading, I wanted to have a place other educators could go for a resource when in need of assistance with their Guided Reading instruction and implementation.
The goal of this website is to provide explicit instruction on how to assess, develop, and administer Guided Reading groups in the K-5 classroom. You will find research based methods for assessment and differentiated instruction in your classroom. In addition, this website offers resources that have been gathered from multiple sources that have been deemed beneficial to The Guided Reading Teacher.
