How to use this product:
Don't think-alouds interrupt the reading process? Yes, but there are huge payoffs-all readers who use them develop deeper metacognitive awareness. Through think-alouds we can all share HOW we read as well as WHAT we read. This leads to improving our strategic facility and deepening textual understanding. Plus, good readers interrupt their own reading to stop, reflect, and make connections, so this is not unlike real expert reading. Think-alouds show kids what experts do-formalizing and placeholding!
