How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
Read alouds are a great way for students to hone their own reading skills while sharing their experiences and ideas. In this ongoing class, students will gather three times each week for a different picture book read aloud. As I read the book, they will engage with the book and each other by responding both to questions that I ask and to comments from other students. Topics and reading concepts practiced will vary depending on which book we are reading. In some meetings I will let...
Read alouds are a great way for students of various reading levels to practice reading skills together. Students will practice listening and conversation skills as well as reading concepts including, but not limited to, inferring, predicting, and summarizing.

Students benefit from read alouds in so many ways, it's impossible to list them all here.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
Children's literature includes a broad range of topics and subjects. I select books that are age appropriate. They might contain magic, mythical creatures, or sensitive topics. I will do my best to choose non-controversial books. If you have particular content concerns, please communicate them to me and I will try to adjust my book choices accordingly. Students will listen as I read; they will not be practicing reading aloud themselves. Rather, they will practice the other skills I mentioned in the description and their own reading both aloud and silently will improve by hearing me model.
