What are Interactive Read-Alouds? - 09/27/2013
http://school.phillipmartin.info/school_reader.gif

"Research has demonstrated that the most effective read-alouds are those where children are actively involved asking and answering questions and making predictions , rather than passively listening. " (Lea M. McGee and Judith Schickedanz ) I recently attended a workshop that promoted this idea of interactive read-alouds and at the end of it I was wondering how different was this from what we already do in our classrooms? There are so many 'new approaches' today that most times we get frightened into misunderstanding what they are all about. Most times we realize that it's a new label for an old approach. Well needless to say  I could not see any differences really and I simply went away with new terminology. To me an interactive read-aloud is actually reading to my students and getting them to understand the content while I do so. They can ask questions, make predictions, give ideas all during the reading process rather than waiting till the end. In this way I'm making pretty sure that they understand the content thoroughly enough through meaningful interactions during the reading. Is this idea 'new' to you?
