Anticipatory Set Establish a motivation to learn Model both a non example and an example of fluent reading Reinforce the purpose of the strategy and how it will help them as readers
How to Pair Students Pair students either by same reading ability or by high level readers with low level readers.
How Might I Differentiate This Strategy? Differentiate Reading Materials Encourage Rereading passages Allow students to choose high interest materials for paired reading Allow students to read from different texts during the reading activity. Have one partner occasionally ask comprehension questions. Adjust partners as students improve so students have opportunity to be in the “modeling” role.
