The Road Less Traveled: Poetry and Videotape in a Developmental Reading Class
Latimer, Sherri; Johnson, Shannon
NADE Digest, v3 n2 p23-32 Fall 2007
Developmental reading students respond positively to poetry. This genre engages them and intimidates less than prose. Reading poetry aloud further improves their reading skills because students feel compelled to increase their knowledge and abilities and to pay closer attention to the text when they are required to perform. Videotaping performances heightens this desire to read well and allows students to assess their abilities when viewing the tape.
