Page after page of stunning photos and carefully developed informational text will capture students' interest while building comprehension, specialized vocabulary, and content knowledge.

Shared Reading
One effective method for delivering whole class instruction is Shared Reading. This is a collaborative learning activity that helps students enjoy learning to read. It offers an opportunity to directly teach reading and writing skills in a supportive environment.

Shared Reading includes readings of the same text over a few days. During these readings, make sure to provide ample opportunities for children to be active participants. Shared reading also allows teacher-modeling of reading behaviors, skills, and strategies that children can use while reading independently. This type of scaffolding is especially helpful to English-Language Learners and struggling readers.

Easy to Implement in the Classroom

  • Talk about the topic, the cover photo; ask questions to solicit students' oral participation.
  • Read the Big Book aloud with students once for pleasure.
  • Reread it several times for different purposes in class sessions of 20–30 minutes.
  • Dip into the book for specific information, rather than reading it in sequence each time.

For Effective Shared Reading Sessions:

  • Move slowly through the book as you read together and model fluency.
  • Stop to examine the photos closely.
  • Read and reread sentences to work toward fluency.
  • Invite students to make predictions and ask questions.
  • Explore the special features of nonfiction, such as:
    • table of contents
    • glossary
    • index
    • labels
    • charts
    • captions
    • maps
    • illustrations
Shared Reading models the ways good readers successfully read informational text and it teaches effective reading strategies and behaviors.
