Choral Reading Discussed as an Adjunct to Reading Programs: Primary through Adult.
Partridge, Susan
Choral reading has a place as an adjunct in a total reading program at all levels of education and can serve to help keep alive the enthusiasm and efficiency for learning which children show at home in the first years of life. Many education scholars have noted its usefulness and suggested activities to develop it. Examples of the successful use of choral reading in elementary and secondary clasrooms, as well as with adults in an English-as-a-Second-Language class, demonstrate its advantages as an adjunct to reading programs. Choral reading is enjoyable: it encourages the shy, it promotes alertness, it stimulates thinking, imagination, and creativity, it teaches, it can be used with a wide age range, and it can lead to students' writing of their own selections. (A list of 12 implications of choral reading for educators is attached.) (RS)
