    Hi! Thanks to any and all of you who already responded to my survey posted last week. If any of you are reading this and haven't, would you mind doing so? I will repost it here. I am trying to see if there are any differences in the attitudes of teachers who teach special education and/or reading about reading aloud in classrooms. You all are such a wealth of information for my action research. Thanks again.

    Thank you so much for your participation in this survey and questionnaire. Your responses will be kept confidential and are used only for the purpose of my research report.

    2. How long does/did a typical read-aloud session last in your classroom?



    3. If you do read aloud to your students, what is your intention in doing so?










    4. What benefits do you see students gain from the read-aloud experience?

















    5. What types of books/materials do you use for read-alouds? Please rank them in order from 1 (use the most) to 7 (use the least). Feel free to write in and rank any other resource that I may have forgotten to add.

    1. How often to you read aloud to your students? (If possible, state how many times a week, or month.)
    Daily from a novel and weekly from other sources such as picture books, poems, short stories,etc. So 5-7 times a week.



    2. How long does/did a typical read-aloud session last in your classroom?
    10 - 30 min. Novel read alouds take longer.



    3. If you do read aloud to your students, what is your intention in doing so? To model fluent reading, to model expressive reading, and for the pure joy and a good story.



    4. What benefits do you see students gain from the read-aloud experience?
    They get to experience a wider variety of people, places and subjects then exist in their normal lives. They hear the way a reader is supposed to sound.


    5. What types of books/materials do you use for read-alouds? Please rank them in order from 1 (use the most) to 7 (use the least). Feel free to write in and rank any other resource that I may have forgotten to add.

    __4_ Picture books __1_ Chapter books 2__ Informational/Non-fiction books

    __3_ textbooks _5_magazines __6_ website information

    _7_ (others, please list) poems, charts, directions.




    6. Do you consider read-alouds part of your planned reading curriculum? yes

    What other purposes do they serve in your classroom? Allows the students to get information quicker than if they were reading it on their own which is necessary sometimes.
