"Have you started to question the purpose of D.E.A.R. time? Are you finding reading chapter after chapter of Roald Dahl books to your inattentive class a bit stale? An interactive read aloud is comprised of a series of purposeful activities that incorporate reciprocal teaching, placing more responsibility on students to

share what they are thinking in a way that simulates an authentic reading experience. This session is intended to turn dry, whole class reading into a crucial component of any primary literacy program."
