I think I'm grasping all that Debbie Miller is doing in her workshops... In Reading First we had the 90 min block of very structured instruction - whole group/small groups and centers. I'm now going to a building that is a 90 min guided reading block and I would like to incorporate the ideas that Debbie has given. My difficulty is where is the instruction time with small groups and one on one? Is it all mini-lesson with the students using their own book choices? Where is the assessment? As a 3rd grade teacher that is under pressure of the state test - I want to be sure that I'm giving my students the tools to succeed. I would love input on how it looks in your classroom. This will be my 4th year teaching and I'm still LEARNING! Thanks.
