Product Description
Students need to understand what they read. They need to be able to utilize their schema to make connections, and critically think about concepts presented. I have found that choral reading aids, students even the most reluctant ones, to help build students' fluency, self-confidence, and motivation. Choral Reading is reading aloud together in groups. Students who may ordinarily feel self-conscious or nervous about reading aloud have built-in support through their peers. This method also lends itself well to a cross curricular approach. Drama, Music and Oral Communication can all be facilitated with this method. By clicking on the link, you will be brought to a lesson plan for Junior to Middle grades where choral reading is incorporated to help students understand mood, theme, and expression through analyzing and listening to a song ("One" performed by U2 and by Johnny Cash). These two performances are an excellent example how different performances of the same lyrics can impact mood. Further, students will then create a Choral Reading Performance that can demonstrate their understanding of changing mood, theme, and perspectives by utilizing a new poem.
Included is a detailed lesson plan, with an oral presentation (rubric included). A sample of a poem to demonstrate Choral Reading is also included.
