When we think of shared reading, we typically think of Mrs. Wishy-Washy and enthusiastic kindergartners. In this session, Kathy will help to expand our vision of shared reading to include older students in addition to our youngest learners. Kathy will share ideas for a variety of ways to use shared reading to support children as they learn how to understand more deeply, to read more fluently, and to talk more about texts. She’ll show some examples of work in classrooms, including work with informational text, and she’ll provide many ideas for how to implement a comprehensive shared reading time, characterized by engagement, joy, and ambitious yet fair expectations of children.
