In every minute of every day, teachers make countless decisions—both planned and in the moment. And in few settings is this more evident than during guided reading instruction.

In Teachers as Decision Makers, Robin Griffith draws on years of research and countless interactions with students and teachers to present a framework of instructional decision making centered on the readers we work with, the books we share with them, and the instructional objectives we guide them toward.

In this fresh look at the instructional choices we make, Griffith offers an in-depth guide in which you’ll discover how to make effective, student-driven decisions, both while planning for and in the moments of teaching at the guided reading table, including:

  • the Teacher Decision Making Framework, grounded in the learner, the goal, and the text
  • direct applications across three guided reading text level bands: Emergent, Early, and Transitional
  • tables, charts, and reproducibles for easy reference in assessing and monitoring key reading behaviors at each band
  • 50 quick reference Decision Guides for practical planning and responding in three instructional areas: Word Solving, Fluency and Expression, and Comprehension

Whether you’re new to guided reading or looking to refine your practice, this practical resource will give you the tools you need to elevate your instruction and refine your ability to make effective decisions when teaching young readers.
