The Effect of Story Read-Alouds on Children's Foreign Language Development
Norato Cerón, Catalina
GIST Education and Learning Research Journal, n8 p83-98 Jan-Jun 2014
This action research project examines the impact of reading stories aloud on the development of children's reading and critical thinking strategies as well as on the improvement of English as a foreign language. Analysis of journal entries and transcriptions of recordings of the sessions were used to gather the information. Data collected revealed that children improved their speaking skills by talking about the story, and that they also learned new words they used to express their opinion even if they had a low proficiency in English. Findings also revealed that resources and methodologies helped students develop their critical thinking as well as their reading comprehension towards books.
