Hi! Thanks for the sample Think-aloud lesson plan. I am working for my research studies and my thesis is about innovative strategies in improving reading comprehension. Think-aloud is one of the four that I am implementing. This site has helped me improve my teaching using the think-aloud strategy. I like the Think-Aloud Rubric and will use it in my class.

I believe this is an effective lesson. I particularly like the group work aspect.

tHE LESSON WORKED WELL FOR ME. WHAT WAS MOST HELPFUL WAS THE AUTHOR'S USE OF CLASSROOM SETTING EXAMPLES TO HELP ME VISUALIZE WHAT STRATEGIES WILL WORK BEST WITH MY TEACHING STYLE. tHE EXTRA READING DIDN'T BOTHER ME BECAUSE OF THE INVALUABLE RESOURCES LINKED TO THE READING.
