Sharing Sessions Provide Structure for Growth in Literacy.
Beed, Penny L.
Primary Voices K-6, v7 n1 p17-24 Aug 1998
Describes Book Sharing Sessions, in which struggling readers are immersed in peer discussions about books they have read. Discusses how, through this immersion and through modeling and explicit instruction, children learn to think about what is important in a book; how to convey its meaning; and how to ask questions, listen, and lead discussions.
