Now used by thousands of teachers across the country! Top 10 UK Educational app!
The 'Guided Reading Questioning Framework' (Narrative Texts) is Alan Peat Ltd's first reading app. It has been designed to help busy teachers to structure their text-based questioning in ten key areas: knowledge, prediction, comprehension, application, analysis, speculation, empathic response, synthesis, evaluation and elaboration.
Each 'area' is treated as a questioning outcome and is comprised of a series of questions - these are framed in a lower order, middle order and higher order manner. As such the content of the app represents a differentiated (critical thinking) developmental continuum of questions.
The app is easy to use and will help to avoid ad hoc and/or repetitive questioning in guided reading sessions. Each 'area' includes a note-taking section. Notes are saved 'in app' but can also be backed-up using Dropbox. Further questions designed by staff and/or clusters of schools can therefore be added, making this an ever-expanding resource.
A 'must-have' app for all schools and the first in a series of apps to support the development of reading in schools.
Adds the ability to zoom in and out on the documents - thanks to Indrani Mitra for the suggestion!
Ratings and Reviews
The app consists of great questions to use to help plan guided reading sessions.
It would be useful if you were able to print the page (to put in planning file) and were able to copy and paste questions (to quickly add to planning).
I've just paid for this and was expecting more for the price. Unfortunately, it's pretty similar to other resources out there, linked with Bloom's Taxonomy.
Just a shame that teachers are making a business out of what used to be a world of sharing and collaboration.
You can find all this just by googling 'Guided reading example questions'. The app developer really should not be charging for this. The questions suggested are also far too generic for SATs practice if that's what you're after. SATs tests rarely ask questions like this.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
