Shared Reading- is a term we use to describe teaching strategies that attempt to draw on the natural literacy learning that has long occurred in book loving homes. These various strategies- shared book experience, choral reading and paired reading= provide children with opportunities to experience good literature as they are learning to read. The strategies have in common a modification of the parent child interaction with repeated readings of favorite books as the child develops a sound system. The Shared Book Experience- is an adaptation of a natural home learning strategy ised with groups of beginning readers in school settings. Big books (enlarged books)are presented to groups of beginning readers. The teacher points out the text of a big book. A review story is then used to teach skills in games, songs that use letter names. Then a new story in Big Book format is presented by the teacher. Students participate by repeating the story after the teacher. Later, students read independently from a wide selection of books. Choral Reading- reading aloud in unison or parts with a whole class, small group, etc so that students hear the text they same time as they read it. Choral reading can involve arranging a poem into speaking parts as a way to enjoy the poem. Choral reading provides help for struggling readersPaired Reading- (partner reading) involves 2 people sharing the text in some way. They can read back and forth to one another or the teacher and child can read side by side. In all strategies, well chosen literature is important, the nature of the experience is companionable not authoritative and the child reader must see text and hear the words simultaneously.
