Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v51 n5 p372-383 Feb 2008
Shared reading with think-alouds provides adolescent students with the modeling they need to become successful readers and writers. This article provides a sample of this type of interactive comprehension instruction in a science classroom. The authors then focus on the dimensions of effective shared readings with think-alouds that can be used across content areas to develop students' comprehension of texts. (Contains 3 tables.)
