Which Book and Why

Using Book Bands and book levels for guided reading in Key Stage 1
Bodman and Franklin (2014)

Which Book and Why demonstrates how schools and teachers can implement guided reading more confidently and more effectively. The book draws together the teaching pedagogy underpinning guided reading using three different teaching purposes: demonstrating how to develop word-reading skills, reading for meaning, and reading for information. The accompanying CD-ROM contains a fully searchable database to support schools and teachers in choosing the most appropriate books at the right level for each group in a class.

The book is available to order directly from ioepress.co.uk or from all good bookshops including online retailers. ISBN: 978-1-78277-022-0.
