I am researching how basals or anthologies are used in the classroom to teach reading. Can anyone who use a basal based program in their school (or teach in a Reading First school) please tell me how a typical reading lesson goes?? I do not have any experience with a basal or how a reading lesson is taught as far as the format and I need additional information for my research. Maybe post the format of a lesson. Or what are the kids doing during the lesson, what are they expected to do for comprehension? What are they expected to do after the lesson?? Thank you so much for your help.
