A Lake Murray Elementary teacher’s passion for all things literacy earned her a spot in the latest edition of a statewide scholarly journal.
As part of her master’s program at the University of South Carolina, Fourth-Grade Teacher Tricia M. Huff submitted an article to Reading Matters, a publication of the South Carolina State Council of the International Reading Association.
In “Bringing Read-Alouds Back Alive,” Huff described why read-alouds are one of her favorite instructional practices. She explained that not only can read-alouds introduce a new topic, but teachers can also use read-alouds to build community with students and encourage their love of reading.
“A teacher can do so many things in the classroom through read-alouds,” Huff said. “I hope other teachers will learn to love read-aloud time and use it for multiple opportunities in their teaching and learning.”
