Capstone Project Title
Trish Harvey, Julianne Scullen
Elementary students who struggle with reading are a common concern among elementary school teachers. This capstone project documents how teachers can use a guided reading curriculum as a way to help their students grow in their reading success. The literature review focused on two main topics; guided reading, and the importance of comprehension in reading. This project and literature review help to answer the question, How can guided reading help elementary students read at grade level by middle school? According to the literature, guided reading has a positive impact on helping elementary students learn to read (Richardson, 2016). This capstone is a combination of resources to aid teachers who are using guided reading for the first time in their classrooms, or who need a little help in organizing their guided reading materials as well as a literacy communication document. This project is important to the capstone question because when teachers have guided reading materials ready and organized, they will be able to focus on their teaching and ensure their lessons are differentiated for their students’ needs. This research should be shared so teachers can utilize the materials for guided reading in their own classrooms.
