Read Aloud: The Practice (K–5)

Helping our youngest learners understand the joy and magic to be found between the covers of a book begins in Read Aloud time. Considering text selection, lesson design and co-construction of meaning through talking with others are keys to supporting learners to understand the bigger meanings a reader builds within and across texts. This session will explore understandings and attitudes developed by learners when a teacher engages students through meaningful discussions during read aloud.
