One goal of teachers and librarians is to promote the joy of reading in all children and to ensure that reading is a successful and enriching experience. In recent years, Guided Reading has entered many elementary school curriculums with its innovative instructional approach to teaching reading. It is comprehensive in scope, but one key component is leveled reading. The process is supported by a special library of books that are labeled Level A through Level T. This collection is housed outside of the school media center.

What implications and opportunities are there for librarians to assist in this initiative? Discover what Guided Reading is, why it works, and how both school and public librarians can support its ultimate goal – successful readers.
