Anita Archer Guru of Explicit Instruction Demonstrates Other Options
"Often teachers [and EAs] use round-robin reading, calling on individual children to read. But the disadvantages are well-known...: 1) reduced amount of reading practice as it is distributed across children, 2) voices that cannot be heard, 3) embarrassed low-performing children, 4) off-task students, 5) management challenges emerging in the void, 6) boredom, and 7) many more that you can add. In this video, Dr. Archer just reminds us of some of the other possible passage reading procedures. Though she does these in quick succession for purpose of a short video, these practices would often be used for subsequent rereadings of the passage in a large or small group." ~ Explicitinstruction.org
