Read-aloud time is much treasured in elementary and middle school classrooms as teachers share their favorite children's classics with their young readers. Linda Hoyt's Interactive Read-Alouds will help you make the most of this time by showing you creative ways to use popular children's literature to teach specific standards and build fluency and comprehension. Combining guided conversations with reflective thinking, Linda's read-aloud lessons engage children in strategic listening, speaking, reading and writing about text.

This slide presentation describes the thinking, organization, and features in the Interactive Read-Alouds series. Select "Full Screen" in the "View" menu and advance pages using the arrows on your keyboard.
