In Step 1 you will be introduced to dialogic reading practices through a practice dilemma. The dilemma is about a teacher who wants to maximize the benefits of storybook reading for the children in her class.
Meet Tenisha. She is a pre-K teacher in a public elementary school. She has noticed that some children are not paying attention during storybook reading. Tenisha also wants to see how she can better meet her children’s learning needs during storybook reading and wonders if there are specific approaches that she could be using for that purpose. Follow the instructions in Activity 6.1a and watch Video 6.1 to learn about Tenisha’s dilemma.
