The featured section this week on the Saskatchewan Reads website is Instructional Approaches. This section has a plethora of resources supplied by all areas of the province to support educators with the instructional approaches associated with the gradual release of responsibility to teach reading!
The first two resources can be found by scrolling down to the bottom of the introductory Instructional Approaches page. There you will find an archived webinar that outlines the ‘Gradual Release of Responsibility’ instructional model and its effectiveness in literacy instruction. The second resource at the bottom of the Instructional Approaches is a modifiable word document entitled Key Elements of the Sask. READS Instructional Approaches. This resource could support a teacher in planning a lesson as well as provide an administrator the ‘look fors’ when visiting a classroom.
A wide variety of Video, Word, and PDF resources is included at the bottom of each of the instructional approaches web pages: Modelled Reading, Shared Reading, Scaffolded/Guided Reading, and Independent Reading
Thank you to Chinook, Good Spirit, Northwest, Lloydminster Public, Treaty Six Education Council, Saskatchewan Rivers, Prince Albert Grand Council, Saskatoon Public, and Regina Public for providing these resources.

My name is Tessa. I started my teaching career this year in Grade 1. I have a lot of questions about the English Language Arts program and especially about teaching reading. What is important to understand about reading? How do I teach reading? Where do I begin? What does it look like?
Follow Tessa as she discovers the answers to these questions and many more. Welcome to the online resource developed for elementary educators by the Provincial Reading Team. It includes instructional strategies, videos, sample lessons … and more.
