Educators have taught literacy using a variety of methods and theories. While a number of these methods and theories have come and gone, guided reading, running records, and miscue analysis have proven to provide educators with the resources needed to understand the variety of reading behaviors children have. In addition, researchers and educators have found that a balanced approach to literacy is the most effective method of teaching reading. The purpose of this project was to research guided reading, running records, and miscue analysis and prepare a PowerPoint presentation for educators at Laurel Elementary school.
