Chalk Talk: Classroom Reading Strategies
In many elementary classrooms, teachers have different rules as to how much material students are required to read, and some even allowed readers to stop and “popcorn” someone in the middle of a paragraph. This is a flawed approach that is losing popularity. Allowing students to choose other students to read can create tension and embarrassment amongst students, or students may always predictably pick their friends to read. Some teachers would have each student read a paragraph (or other set amount of text) and follow an order when reading (for example, the order they are seated in or alphabetical order). This isn’t a great strategy either because if students know ahead of time the section they will be reading, they will practice reading it to themselves over and over again and not pay attention to the rest of the text, while those who do not have an assigned reading may not pay attention at all. Teachers need to consider small-group strategies when deciding how to approach oral reading in their classrooms.
