Paired Reading

(Category: Reading)
Paired reading is a short-team reading intervention. Student reading is supported by a tutor. Paired Reading runs three to four times a week for six weeks. A Paired Reading Initiative can work where JCSP students act as tutors to a primary school class, or senior cycle students are reading tutors for a JCSP class or parents work as tutors with JCSP students. Students are awarded for successfully taking part in this reading project. The following support materials are provided to schools:
• Paired Reading teacher guidelines
• Paired Reading tutor training video “Everybody Reads”
• Paired Reading student achievement certificate
• A variety of bookmarks

Students are afforded an opportunity to complete statements CC 51 and 54.

We would be very grateful if the photos are sent to us digitally as the quality is great for publications. Please make sure that you have sought permission from parents/guardians to use the photos in publications.
