Reading 210 Distinguished Educator Assignment September 26, 2007 Gay Su Pinnell and the Guided Reading Approach Dr. Gay Su Pinnell is an Ohio State University professor in the School of Teaching and Learning. She has received many awards, including but not limited to Ohio State’s Distinguished Teaching Award, The International Reading Association’s Albert J. Harris Award, and the Charles A. Dana Award. One of Pinnell’s most notable accomplishments is the system she developed in conjunction with Irene Fountas in 1996 for teaching reading. The “Guided Reading” system developed by Pinnell and Fountas is designed to not only show children how to read but also to give teachers the tools they need to support children at varying levels of ability as they read. Guided Reading is said to be the “heart” of a balanced literacy program in today’s classroom. The ultimate goal of guided reading is to empower children to learn how to effectively use independent reading strategies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
