Purposeful readers think about their own reading as they navigate through a text. Join this workshop to learn how to build students’ comprehension and metacognition. We will focus on think alouds and learn an easy-to-implement three-step planning process. Make the most of your read alouds by thinking big so your students will internalize reading strategies! At the end of this workshop, attendees will:

  • Be versed in the research supporting think alouds and understand the theoretical framework underpinning think alouds
  • Evaluate and differentiate between effective think alouds and not-so-effective think alouds
  • Learn a three-step process to planning effective think alouds
  • Apply each step to authentic literature to plan their own think aloud across grade level, text genre, and content areas.
