Same Book, Different Experience: A Comparison of Shared Reading in Preschool Classrooms
Kindle, Karen J.
Journal of Language and Literacy Education, v7 n1 p13-34 2011
Shared reading is a common practice in preschool classrooms and is purported to develop oral language, print concepts, and listening comprehension. This study compares the practices of four preschool teachers while reading aloud a common text. Findings suggest that the shared reading experience differs significantly from classroom to classroom in key dimensions. Implications suggest that more effective means of professional development are needed to maximize learning during shared reading events.
