by Primeau, Jessica M

Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this study was to examine the read-aloud practices of secondary language arts teachers as well as the secondary students’ perception of teacher read-alouds. The educator’s behaviors and views in connection with the read-aloud practice was examined in addition to the secondary students’ experiences with read-alouds, as well as their opinions. Nine high school sophomores and five sophomore language arts teachers participated in interviews aimed at discovering information regarding teacher read-alouds. The students and educators were asked to answer questions pertaining to their experiences with and perceptions about teacher read-alouds. The conclusions drawn from the study revealed that the read-aloud practice is indeed, valued by students and teachers alike in addition to a wide range of other findings. In the end, recommendations were made that will help improve the read-aloud practice for years to come.
