Interactive Read-Alouds by Linda Hoyt

Interactive Read-Alouds

An Interactive Read-aloud with a Clear Instructional Focus Lifts Student Achievement. Standards that are commonly held across many states are the driving force throughout these lessons. Each lesson, with its accompanying mentor text and Booklinks, is designed to help children see a standard in action within the supportive and safe context of a readaloud.

The components at each level include:

  • The Interactive Read-Alouds book of lessons contains over 60 standards-based lessons designed around children's classics with Share the Reading texts and Readers Theater scripts for each lesson.Read-aloud lessons are grouped into six standards-based strands: comprehension, story elements, vocabulary/literary language, literary elements and devices, genre, and writing traits.
  • The Interactive Read-Alouds Teacher's Guide outlines the thinking behind Interative Read-Alouds and describes how to apply the strategies in your own classroom.
  • The Interactive Read-Alouds CD-ROM provides all of the shared text and Readers Theater scripts in an easily accessible PDF format.
