Choral Reading

Post by Elizabeth » Fri Sep 23, 2016 9:05 am

A talk was given as part of a project I am involved with. One of the speakers promoted choral reading. She said choral reading is good "after children have acquired basic phonics skills".

Do any readers have experience of using choral reading or know about evidence for or against the use choral reading?

The only time I have ever seen choral reading in action was when I was doing a Y6 transition visit. The children who could read read along with the teacher, the children who couldn't read opened and shut their mouths.

I just did not see the point of it. But perhaps it wasn't 'properly done' choral reading.
