Building Reading Comprehension through Think-Alouds.
Henry, Laurie
The reading comprehension program described in this lesson introduces the components of think-alouds and text interactions, and helps students to develop the ability to use think-alouds to aid in reading comprehension tasks. During two 45-minute lessons, students will: explore the use of the think-aloud strategy; vocalize interactions with texts; discuss connections between texts and previously acquired knowledge; use various types of responses to interact with texts; and assess personal level of comprehension. The instructional plan, lists of resources, student assessment/reflection activities, and a list of National Council of Teachers of English/International Reading Association (NCTE/IRA) Standards addressed in the lesson are included. A think aloud interactive and a think-aloud rubric are attached. (PM)
