Not Just for After Lunch: Accelerating Vocabulary Growth during Read-Aloud
Toth, Aimee
Reading Teacher, v67 n3 p203-207 Nov 2013
This Teaching Tip is based on a vocabulary study conducted at Thetford Elementary in Thetford, Vermont. It explores the positive effects of utilizing paired conversational response and teaching of associative connections within read aloud. Teachers who scaffold student understanding during read aloud using the Four C's: compare and contrast vocabulary, make connections to what is known, and use context to fill in meaning for unknown words, will see the greatest gains in their students.
