Now more than ever, today's teachers are grappling with the question of how to reach struggling readers. While there are no quick fixes, thousands of teachers are combining the principles of differentiated instruction and guided reading with unparalleled success. Mixed in the right proportion, these popular strategies will help you build a balanced literary framework that gets results with even the most challenged learners.
Differentiated instruction tactics will help you understand how your students learn so you can teach in a way that makes sense to them. When you apply those tactics within the guided reading framework, which helps you lead students through new ways of approaching text, great things start to happen. The result is a classroom full of students who are able to negotiate increasingly challenging texts with unprecedented fluency.
This course is critical for today's educators, who often have to teach on the run with limited resources and unlimited demands on their time. Get ready to reach your readers with ease in no time flat!
Note: To receive 25 hours of instruction in the State of Oregon, please ensure your school is eligible to issue professional development units, and that the course is approved by your professional learning coordinator.
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.

Wow, I loved this chapter!! Thank you, Marsha. I would love to meet you and share experiences. My goal at school this year has been to try to get my teachers to buy into differentiation of instruction. "NO TIME! NO TIME!" This is the common theme. Thank you for giving such quick practical suggestions that can be implemented in five minutes or fifty minutes, teacher's choice! For those of you who are not currently teaching, this course has been one of the most logical and practical that I have had. Start now making things for your future classrooms. I believe I remember one of my classmates used these ideas with their own children.
For me, the most beneficial part of the class was the assignments. I could go right back to my class the next day and I had something to do with the class that I knew was meaningful and beneficial to my students and me. The kids loved helping me with my "homework" and I think it served as an excellent example of being a lifelong learner…I feel much better about myself as a reading teacher and I know taking this class will help me better meet the needs of my students…I will definitely recommend ed2go and this instructor to others.
I really enjoyed this class. It confirmed a lot of Guided Reading Strategies that I already use, but taught me so much about Differentiated Instruction that I did not know. It was excellent and I will recommend this course to others. This instructor's class was tough but awesome! It really took effort, which it should.
This class was very helpful to me. I like the instructor's presentation and style. After reading the lesson I was encouraged and eager to try out new techniques with my students. I highly recommed this class to other teachers and would absolutely take another class with this instructor. Thank you!
This class provided me with many strategies and techniques I could use not only in my classroom, but for my children as well. It reiterated the importance of Bloom's Taxonomy and Gardner's multiple intelligence theory as well as many others. I enjoyed reading through and printing materials from the supplemental websites that the teacher recommended. It gave me great ideas to not only use in the classroom but also at home with my children. Thank you!
I really enjoyed this class. The instructor is a master teacher. Her writing and information were well planned and easy to follow. The examples given were easy to understand and relate to. It was an excellent experience.
Fabulous course! I have been teaching for 20 plus years and I still learned so much. Thank you!
The course answered the questions I had about improving my instruction of literature. Being an older teacher, I want to keep with the current teachings, and this class did just that.
I thought the instructor did a great job. Lots of good ideas!!
The instructor was well versed in strategies from K through 12. She had great suggestions for all student abilities.
