Assisting Teachers in Teaching in Reading Instruction.
Reading aloud can help students who have problems comprehending social studies subject matter. Teachers, parents, and volunteers can all serve as effective oral readers. Teachers and principals should list goals for volunteers to achieve when reading aloud. In addition, to vary the oral reading approach, students can take turns reading aloud. Different kinds of comprehension questions may be raised during a read-aloud, which include critical thinking, creative reading, and analysis. Volunteers can become more effective teachers through inservice education and by considering psychologies of learning. While classroom teachers face multiple responsibilities in their classroom, aide service provides students a chance to develop improved reading skills. (PM)
