The Read-Aloud Handbook.
Intended for both parents and teachers, this handbook promotes reading aloud as a way to stimulate students' interest in reading and to improve their reading achievement. After an introduction and first chapter that stress the value of reading aloud, the book's second chapter explains when to begin reading aloud to children. The following three chapters describe the stages of reading aloud, its do's and don'ts, and criteria for judging the appropriateness of reading material for the method. Chapters six and seven explain the roles of home and public libraries and television in a read aloud program, while chapter eight promotes sustained silent reading as reading aloud's natural partner. The final chapters contain an annotated list of read aloud materials and a guide to using the listed materials. (JL)
