Reading Aloud in Class
Alex Quigley argues against "popcorn" or RRR (round-robin reading). https://www.theconfidentteacher.com/2022/02/who-should-read-aloud-in-class/
Professor Diane Lapp, from San Diego State University suggests (in If You Want Students to Read Widely and Well - Eliminate Round-Robin Reading (2012)):
- Repeated reading, which involves repeating a reading modelled ﬁrst by the teacher or another proﬁcient reader.
- Choral reading, which means reading together with others who are proﬁcient readers.
- Echo reading, or the student echoing or repeating what the proﬁcient reader has just read.
- Readers’ Theatre involves a dramatic reading of a text or script by the students.
- Neurological impress, which involves the student and teacher reading together while tracking words.
