Sign Up for Reading: Students Read Aloud to the Class
This article provides a simple, research‐based idea for how teachers can promote reading through performance by using sign‐up sheets on which each student signs up to read aloud to the class. The sign‐up‐for‐reading strategy gives students a reason to read; provides opportunities for oral reading, rereading, practice reading, and selecting reading materials; and helps develop prosody. When teachers provide opportunities for performance reading and structure it with a reading sign‐up sheet, all students participate and have a chance to grow enthusiastically as readers.
