The district I work in has been instructing teachers that a teaching point needs to occur in the introduction of the text during Guided Reading and then followed up with after the students read. However, from my understanding of Fountas and Pinnell's information, I believe that the teaching point should occur after the students have read the text and discussed it during the Guided Reading lesson. What information or resources can I offer in order to support that the teaching point should occur after the reading and discussion? Thank you very much!

Guided Reading: Responsive Teaching Across the Grades provides detailed information about the entire guided reading lesson for all grade levels. Everything you need is in that professional resource.

The blog found at the following link lists the steps in the guided reading lessons. https://fpblog.fountasandpinnell.com/what-is-guided-reading This shows that the 1-2 teaching points come after the reading. However some teaching does occur in the introduction. The teaching tip at https://fpblog.fountasandpinnell.com/unlock-a-text-through-effective-book-introductions-a-teacher-tip-from-fountas-and-Pinnell provides a little information about that. Fountas and Pinnell have published two articles that may help provide more information. http://www.fountasandpinnell.com/resourcelibrary/id/181 and http://www.fountasandpinnell.com/resourcelibrary/id/430

More information can be found in the webinars and videos available under the EXTEND tab above.

Best wishes for success!
Debbie
