Shared Reading to Build Vocabulary and Comprehension
Kesler, Ted
Reading Teacher, v64 n4 p272-277 December 2010
The author presents four approaches to shared reading that he used with first through third graders in a high-needs, urban elementary school with a large population of students from immigrant homes. Using sociocultural and cognitive constructivist principles, the author shows how these approaches built students' academic vocabulary and comprehension of the decontextualized language of books.
