Guided Instruction

Guided instruction is small group instruction facilitated by the teacher for a short period of time meant to develop meaningful understanding of concepts. Guided instruction can occur in any content area but is most frequently seen in reading and mathematics. Instructional topics are often focused on one or two specific learning targets during a guided instructional setting. Guided groups often last for 15-30 minutes, frequently followed by the students doing an independent or non-teacher led learning experience. Groups tend to be eight students or fewer.
