You’ve probably heard all about the benefits of reading aloud to your students. But what if you’ve never made time for read alouds before, or if you have, how do you know if they’re having the impact you hope?

In this course, you will learn how build your read-aloud times from the ground up. You’ll develop strategies for choosing the right texts, structuring your time, and engaging diverse learners. Whether you’re looking to motivate reluctant readers or challenge skilled readers (or a little bit of both), you’ll be able to create a plan for enhancing comprehension skills, building vocabulary, and developing students’ love of reading.

Regardless of what subject you teach, you can use the tools from this course to create a robust read-aloud classroom environment and inspire greater engagement in reading.
