Reading Aloud: Engaging Young Children during a Read Aloud Experience
Acosta-Tello, Enid
Research in Higher Education Journal, v37 Nov 2019
Research documents the benefits of reading aloud to children and suggests that the more children are engaged during the read aloud experience the greater the benefit to their language and reading development. Children's engagement during a read aloud can be increased by creating anticipation regarding the story, making predictions about what will happen in the story, making connections with the characters, and by utilizing dialogic reading strategies. This paper makes specific recommendations on how to engage young children during a read aloud experience.
