This involves the teacher reading quality writing aloud to the entire class. There are moments when the teacher stops to ask questions while the students respond. Children learn to listen with intent and comprehension. They also learn to listen to others and develop their own thoughts about what they hear.Shared Reading: The responsibility is shared between the teacher and the students. The text is shared with groups of students to follow along while others are reading as well. The teacher uses this time, evaluate the students reading and use strategies and skills that teach the children what they need to know about reading.Strategy Groups: This is also known as guided reading groups. The teacher will meet with small groups of students who have similar reading levels, and work on a specific strategy while the students are reading.Independent Reading Workshops: Students read at their self-regulating reading level. Teachers will prompt them with questions about the text. You might see students writing journals or feeling about the text.Independent Reading Conference: Teacher works with students one on one. Teachers use this to access student’s needs.All of these components along with structure teaching will provide for an effective and balanced literacy program. The R.E.A.D. program that we plan to institute contains all of these strategies. This program will be delivered through various activities that will encourage the students to read and help with their confidence.
