    We don't have a basal -- but instead school-wide use guided reading. However we have a set of basals per grade level -- about 25 kid books and the teacher edition that are available to pull a story out of if you like it, it's on level, etc. However, in my 4 years here, I'm the only one that's looked through our set and used anything. I know that because it lives on my shelf in my room.

    At the first school I taught in, I was the reading teacher. We were working as school-based reading teachers with the reading specialist in the county office to move away from a basal and more to a guided reading approach. In our small rural district, teachers had been doing things their way for years and weren't changing much, but after 2 years we got a book room going and had a few teachers teachig some guided reading... So I hope it's continued to move there rather than whole-group-together basal instruction.
