The Meaning (Definition) of Reading Aloud

 The Meaning (Definition) of Reading Aloud

Rog (2001: 49) states that reading stories aloud also means to develop children’s concepts about print, story structure, and other elements of text and provides the child with a wealth of information about the processes and functions of written language. Reading aloud to children gives them new understandings on various subjects that they encounter only through books.

Dolores in Aulia (2005:7) defines reading aloud is important and the students should be taught to read aloud. Reading aloud is a kind of reading where a reader expressed orally every word in the text. The purpose of reading aloud is to improve the students’ ability in pronouncing the words, stressing the words, and having a good intonation about every sentence in the passage.

Calkins. L (2009) The interactive read aloud with accountable talk is a powerful teaching component in balanced literacy classrooms. Research confirms the importance and value of reading aloud to students of all ages.  Teachers read aloud several times a day, and at least three times a week create opportunities for accountable talk around the read aloud.  This component is generally outside the reading workshop (which centers around a mini lesson and independent reading) but the read aloud often supports the reading workshop

Terblanche (2002) explains that reading aloud also expands children’s repertoire and teaches a large number of new vocabulary words in context rather than in isolation which affects their reading ability as teachers involve them in discussions about the content of the book.  Teachers encourage them to use the words and expressions from the text in their responses and guide them to talk about the book using higher order thinking skills.
