Katherine Casey May 26, 2016 Interactive Read Aloud Day 1        3rd Grade Interactive Read Aloud, Biography, Wilma Unlimited by Kathleen Krull about Wilma Rudolph: In 18 + 2 minutes, students create a timeline during two preselected pauses as they read and select the most important events. The most important event is not that this woman is famous, but which aspect of her life was most inspirational and why. Notice the timeline is very long. It should continue beyond the story using the Author’s Notes and other information (usually included at the end) to show the impact this person made. Note the additional information at the end of many nonfiction books provide a 2nd source for this subject. The blurb on the back can also be useful. Add videos for multi-media. Use short videos on same subject with only the sound to practice listening.
