Developing English Learners' Reading Confidence with Whole-Class Repeated Reading
Monobe, Gumiko; Bintz, William P.; McTeer, Janis S.
Reading Teacher, v71 n3 p347-350 Nov-Dec 2017
This Teaching Tip describes how one second-grade teacher used whole-class repeated reading (WCRR) to promote social interaction and develop reading confidence with English learners (ELs). The authors share a brief review of professional literature on the challenges of ELs and the benefits of repeated reading and WCRR. The authors also provide instructional recommendations for teachers interested in using WCRR in the classroom: prepare intentionally and implement systematically, select texts thoughtfully and sensitively, promote active engagement, support public performance and family involvement, and support reading growth and development. The authors end with final thoughts about how WCRR can help create an inclusive classroom and ultimately help all students, particularly ELs, learn together in an active, meaningful, and enjoyable environment.
