This Reading Text with Appropriate Phrasing and Proper Expression lesson plan also includes:
Practice reading with expression and appropriate phrasing with a scaffolded lesson. There is a detailed script here for you, but you could easily use it simply as an outline. Begin by modeling effective reading by displaying a large-text excerpt and reading through it. An excerpt idea is provided here with slashes where the reader should briefly pause. Explain why you are pausing, then give the class an opportunity to try. Model following along with the text by moving your finger beneath each line you read, encouraging young readers to do the same. Finally, scholars try this out without the slashes, pausing for effect and using expression. Adaptation ideas included!
