Title: Listening Comprehension Read Aloud-Who Was Ruby Bridges?
Description: Listening to narrative text offers students a chance to go beyond decoding and word meaning. Listening as the teacher reads a story gives students an opportunity to appreciate, draw significance, and meaning as well as informal practice using story elements. Listening to read alouds gives the teacher the opportunity to model "close" reading skills as well as model thinking. This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.
