Connecting Read Alouds to the Science of Reading

Presented by Molly Ness

With so much focus on students’ foundational skills, we cannot afford to overlook the unconstrained components of language comprehension. In this edWebinar, author Dr. Molly Ness highlights the research showing the cognitive, linguistic, socio–emotional—and even physiological—benefits of read alouds.

Despite their solid research basis, 50–70% of teachers do not plan read alouds in advance! This session overviews a planning protocol for effective read alouds in PreK–8 in literacy blocks and content–area classrooms. Learning outcomes include:

  • Understand the current trends and data around reading aloud in PreK–8 classrooms
  • Develop an understanding of a three–step planning process for read alouds
  • Use read alouds to foster vocabulary development, funds of knowledge, and language comprehension

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK–8 teachers.
