Read Alouds for the Secondary Classroom: Titles & Teaching Strategies

January 27, 2017

This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about using read alouds in the ELA classroom. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the purposes and structures of read alouds in their classrooms. Teachers also shared favorite read aloud titles, ways to use read alouds with writing instruction, and where to find great read aloud recommendations.

Read through the chat below to see how read alouds are used to engage students and introduce reading strategies. You'll get ideas about what read alouds to share in your own classroom: novels. You'll also find ways to use movie clips, speeches, and nonfiction and argument pieces as read alouds.

Hope you'll join us on Tuesday January 31st to discuss using technology in the ELA classroom. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, resource links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
