Reading Compositions Aloud

Annotated Research

Question: What happens when students read their compositions aloud?

Answer: “Having students read essays increased awareness of writing processes in three of the six students studied.” EM Baer. 1989. P. 218.

Comment: I would conclude from this study that the results are inconclusive. However, the practice of having students read their essays aloud is good training for learning to read aloud effectively. Practice. Practice. Practice. RayS.
