Key Links Literacy: Peer Readers

There’s a wide and noticeable gap between what students can accomplish in small-group guided reading and how productive they are when asked to sit and read alone.

Key Links Literacy Peer Readers are authored by Jill Eggleton

Key Links Literacy Peer Readers provide the manageable step in the middle of the balanced literacy story. As students master skills in guided reading, they move on to scaffolded, independent work with peers. Peer reading supports the transition from guided reading to reading independence!

Designed with:

  • ThinkLinks™ prompts on every page of every book.
  • Built-in scaffolding that gradually releases the responsibility from the teacher to the students.
  • Engaging, colorful photographs and illustrations.
  • Predictable text structure.
  • Robust retelling and summarizing activities.
  • A dictionary and thesaurus in every title.
  • Maps and index features in nonfiction titles.
  • Graphic organizers for putting it all together.
  • Writing ideas and prompts that wrap up the text.

How it works

Key Links Literacy Peer Readers gradually release the responsibility to students as they do the thinking independently, without the teacher. Based on the foundation of reciprocal teaching, Key Links Literacy Peer Readers help students dig deeper into texts, engage in discussions and think openly within a collaborative, supportive setting.

Key Links Literacy Peer ReadersChoose a Color

Lively groups of no more than 6 students select one of the six colorful faces in the book. When students see their icon, they know it's their turn to lead the group.

Key Links Literacy Peer ReadersRead the Text

Peers read fast-paced, engaging texts on their own time, silently or aloud.

Key Links Literacy Peer ReadersDiscuss and Retell the Topic

Partners stop at points within the text to ask each other questions and provide answers. There are plenty of opportunities for student leaders to ask themselves and their peers higher-order questions about what they read. Partners also summarize at the end of the reading. 

Key Links Literacy Peer ReadersRespond to the Text

Groups complete graphic organizers and write in response to the story or content-area topic.
