Hello,
I am a Resource teacher working on my masters, who strongly supports Guided Reading. In my current course on Planning, Instruction, and Assessment, we are learning about some of the philosophical underpinnings behind curriculum design. Of the major theories, we see four main areas of design, which are Subject-centred, Student-centred, Social Reconstruction (Society/Problem-centred and life application), and Technology/Social Efficacy centred. From reading the FP vision and participating in many Guided Reading programs in my teaching career, I see great emphasis on a Student-centred approach to design.

Is this an accurate interpretation of your philosophy and curricular design?
How can I incorporate aspects of technology and societal problems for our young learners using the FP system?
My teachers decide on which curricular content to teach. As a Resource teacher, how can I supplement the curricular content using FP materials?

Can you walk me through the planning, instruction, and assessment of a sample Guided Reading lesson for elementary aged students?

I look forward to your response. Thank you for your time! K

Wow! Responding to your request could be a 6 hour seminar!

Actually I think you might find the videos and recorded webinars in the Resource Library to be of more help than my trying to explain the framework in this format. Try searching and viewing at the following link. Then see what your specific questions might be for a discussion.

I also recommend the professional book Guided Reading. https://www.fountasandpinnell.com/guidedreading/

You can find information about Fountas and Pinnell's Core Values and Vision for Literacy at https://www.fountasandpinnell.com/intro/ The theory is really responsive teaching which does depend on the needs of the students. http://www.fountasandpinnell.com/resourcelibrary/id/274 and http://www.fountasandpinnell.com/resourcelibrary/id/430

Best wishes in your continuing to learn!
Debbie
