Linda Hoyt covers oral, guided, and independent reading, as well as writing, providing more than 170 minilessons for understanding individual words and whole texts, fiction, and nonfiction. For each “Snapshot,” Linda guides you through a process for gradually handing over responsibility to your students:
  • Demonstration: Communicate the goal of the lesson to your students
  • Guided and Independent Practice: Give students the chance to try the strategy, perhaps in pairs, small groups, or teams
  • Reflection: Students must think about the strategy, to promote its long-term use
