During shared reading, you and your students read aloud an enlarged version of an engaging text that provides opportunities for your students to expand their reading competencies. From learning initial concepts of print to navigating complex text structures and crafting techniques, shared reading offers readers across grade levels the opportunity to step up together into more challenging texts.
In this edWebinar, we learn more about how to use shared reading as an instructional tool for:
- Joining play and work
- Connecting language and print
- Exploring genres and forms
- Navigating craft techniques and text features
- Moving from community support to independence
This recorded edWebinar is of interest to teachers, librarians, and school leaders of the elementary grades.
