Program: Guided Reading, What’s New, What’s Next? presented by Mike Ford  
Guided Reading has been around a long time, but what does the research tell us about how it’s been implemented and the impact it is having? Let’s actively examine current guided reading practices, look at them closely and think about insights and practical ideas to improve future practices to maximize the promise of guided reading’s instructional power for all learners.
