Why is it a good idea for a teacher to make their students take turns reading the first couple chapters of a novel out loud as a class before the teacher assings the rest of the novel to be read on their own?

  • English -

    First of all, it gets everyone started on the assignment. That way they are more apt to finish it. Reading outloud is a good way to find out who has trouble reading, being heard, phrasing, etc. This is something I often did with literature! You can also tell who understands what is being read by the way it is read outloud.

    Sra (aka Mme)

    (And I did it in 3 languages = Spanish, French and English, depending upon the class.)
