“Burkins and Croft offer a refreshingly honest and insightful accounting of working through their 'tricky parts,’ while providing practical ideas that teachers everywhere can carry into their own guided reading instruction.”
“Rather than being a prescriptive how-to, this book encourages teachers to thoughtfully examine their guided reading instruction. Burkins and Croft strike the perfect balance between the theoretical and the practical, providing teachers with useful strategies that support students’ growth as readers while challenging teachers to examine their beliefs about guided reading.”
"A practical, accessible, and concise resource for teachers and literacy coaches. The concrete, thoroughly explained examples are presented with clear and specific directives for implementation. It’s refreshing to see the book’s emphasis on including comprehension instruction in early literacy programs. Preventing Misguided Reading fills a valuable need by providing K-2 teachers with a strong, yet concise overview of useful instructional strategies for small-group literacy instruction."
"There are a lot of confusions about how much should be included in a guided reading lesson and where it fits in with other elements of literacy instruction. Many teachers are working hard to refine their practice, and will appreciate this easy-to-access resource."
"This is a very empowering book, helping open teachers’ eyes to the research-supported fact that they are indeed the most important factor in student learning. I LOVE that it focuses on the teacher as a professional!"
"Jan Miller Burkins helps reestablish balance amidst the current focus on reading levels. Her emphasis on teaching for independence, and the need for more independence in guided reading, really struck a chord with me. I will tell my fellow literacy coordinators that they need to read this book!"
