Students are eagerly anticipating winter break so if the holidays are a distraction, try some choral readings that will get the entire class involved. Choral reading is a terrific way to increase fluency and comprehension in a whole class setting. Every student, even reluctant ones, has the opportunity to practice without being singled out. Repeated readings are an easier sell if the piece will later be performed or recorded.
