Small group learning contexts offer an ideal opportunity for the voices of learners and teachers to come together, and ‘guided reading’ presents a particular incarnation of groupwork which many teachers have built into their literacy teaching since the onset of the National Literacy Strategy in 1998. Although the term ‘guided’ implies a dominant role for the teacher, this can be realised in different ways.

This session will be based on research in progress into video-recorded interactions during guided reading lessons in a Year 4 class, and will include some description of the analytic framework proposed as well as exploration of the issues raised, including:
• the nature of interactions between teacher and learners;
• variations in control - the sequence of framings that can occur as a lesson unfolds;
• the ‘connection’ between teacher and individual learners.
