UCL Institute of Education, in association with Reading Recovery Europe, has published a number of books for classroom teachers to support the teaching of guided reading at Key Stages 1 and 2.
- Which Book and Why, Using Book Bands and book levels for guided reading in Key Stage 1
- Bridging Bands for Guided Reading, Resourcing for diversity into Key Stage 2
- Guiding Readers - Layers of Meaning, A handbook for teaching reading comprehension to 7-11 year-olds
- Book Bands for Guided Reading, 4th edition. This title is now out of print. It has been replaced by Which Book and Why.
These books provide classroom teachers and school librarians with a resource to 'band' guided reading books in appropriate levels for children of different abilities and ages. This can support assessment and tailoring instructions to the individual child.
