In my school, we are paired up with an assistant for Guided Reading. During the Reading block, our assistant - whoever it may be: SpEd teacher, computer teacher, classroom aide, etc. - comes into the room and meets with different groups (1 or more). I would like to make a set of guidelines for how I would like the guided reading time to be used in the room, but would that be overstepping any boundaries? I just want to make sure that the students are getting the absolute best instruction and that they are learning what needs to be learned at that time. I know that the other teachers / aides can definitely teach the groups; I have no doubt in my mind about that. I simply want to make sure this time is as organized as possible so that the time is utilized in the best way.
