Thanks to Anne at The Learning Zoo for bringing this to our attention.
Choral Reading is a strategy that can be used to develop fluency; this is a strategy many practitioners use already in some form. Watch a fantastic example of Choral Reading below:
The objective of Choral Reading is to build pace when reading aloud. Learners – working in pairs, trios or small groups – should be given a text that is separated into small chunks. Each reader should be allocated sections that they read independently and sections that they read in unison. This should be read in sequence, providing learners with an opportunity to develop expression, rhythm and volume.
