Hi teachers, I am very nervous for this question in an interview. How would you answer it?

I would first find out what the district uses to teach reading. It can vary from district to district.

In my district I would answer that I use "balanced literacy". This consists of: shared reading, read aloud, independent reading, and guided reading.

I would also mention "Daily 5" and "CAFE".

and I would add something about how you use a systematic approach that combines direct instruction (through mini-lessons) about skill areas (phonics, phonemic awareness, vocab, fluency, and comprehension) and independent and guided practice. which is basically what you do during the daily five...i just think school districts like to hear the term "systematic approach". haha

good luck!

At my last interview they wanted know that I was familiar with teaching guided reading in small groups.

Right on with 'journeygirl'...I would stick to the components of a "balanced literacy" program. Most of today's reading theories include these basic components of reading instruction in some form or fashion. I would briefly throw out the terms D5, CAFE, Literacy Work Stations, etc...Admins like when teachers keep current. But, I would focus on the basic elements of all effective reading programs..Many consider these terms to be 'bandwagons' or copies of what good teachers do. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan...I read and appreciate every new idea that comes along. I incorporate ideas from D5, CAFE, Literacy Work Stations and all the other wonderful creations. But, it always goes back to a balanced program...
