Read Aloud with Accountable Talk plans for:
• Bravemole by Lynne Jonell
• Fireboat by Maira Kalman
• America Under Attack by Don Brown

Read Aloud is a time when teachers can model what proficient readers do as they read. Students need to gather in an area designated for read aloud with a reading partner. Students will be actively engaged in the reading process. They should have their Reader’s Notebook, a pencil and post-it notes.

During a read aloud with accountable talk, the teacher models thinking about the text as he/she reads. The teacher also provides many opportunities for students to respond:
Turning and Talking with a partner
Stopping and jotting quick thoughts on paper
Stopping and quickly sketching what they “see”

Keeping students actively engaged in a read aloud will enhance their comprehension of the text and provide them with an effective model of what a proficient reader does while he/she reads.

Any feedback you provide about this product will be greatly appreciated.
