Teachers Reading Aloud
McQuillan, Kristin
Principal Leadership, v9 n9 p30-31 May 2009
Creating research-based expectations and education strategies for all teachers to implement consistently are the beginning steps in giving all students access to standards-based curriculum and in creating readers, writers, and content learners. Reading aloud is one research-based practice that enhances achievement for all students, whether they are gifted or have learning disabilities. When teachers read aloud, they model the characteristics of fluent, independent reading. Students not only learn about the many print materials available to them but also learn why someone would want to learn to read in the first place. Reading aloud is the foundation for literacy development and is the single most important activity for reading success. In this article, the author describes the benefits of teachers reading aloud to students.
