    Guided Reading and Technology

    The guided reading section provides children the chance to experience a wide variety of literature experiences.The main goal is to improve comprehension using several activities.
    Guided Reading strategies can be adapted to the computer and a word processor through starting the reading experiences by using the Internet to anticipate and make predictions about what will be read. Instead of dividing students into groups to use their paper and pencil a computer screen could be shared by the group in a collaborative effort.
    Books can also be presented to the students in guided reading through a PowerPoint or Hyperstudio presentation with four slides which provide the titles (and maybe a picture of each book taken with a digital camera) and stimulates the students to share personal experiences on the book topic.

    The computer word processor and a wide screen can also be used to create a KWL (Know, Wonder, Learned) chart.Students can respond to what they read using the word processor or PowerPoint or Hyperstudio.The word processor can be used to develop a dramatization as a whole class activity. The original story text can be prepared with a word processor ahead of time in the word processor. This document will be displayed on the screen for the students. The teacher and the class will then convert the story together to create the theater script. The edited document can then be printed out for the student dramatization.
