Engaging Students in Reading Comprehension Using Instructional Conversation book coverEngaging Students in Reading Comprehension Using Instructional Conversation (video)

Peggy Estrada (Producer)

Introduction in Spanish with English subtitles. Voice over in English.

This video demonstrates CREDE's five standards for effective pedagogy through a reading lesson in a first-grade classroom. Filmed in a documentary style, the video shows a two-way immersion teacher instructing a small group of students in the reading process. Throughout, the teacher models instructional conversation, sustained teacher-student dialog that enhances student comprehension of text. Several steps are illustrated, such as connecting the text's theme to the academic goals and setting a purpose for reading. 2004.
