  20. 20. How Choral Reading Can Foster Fluency in Struggling Readers • Choral reading provides support for students who may ordinarily feel self-conscious or nervous about reading aloud in class. • Choral reading may provide the support necessary to encourage struggling readers to take risks and build their confidence.
  21. 21. Choosing Texts for Choral Reading Almost any text can be read chorally. Shorter texts with rhythm and distinct parts often work best. Using community texts can help build school spirit, classroom community, or civic consciousness.
