Paired Reading

(Category: Reading)
Paired Reading is a short-team reading intervention. A tutor supports student reading. 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 can be provided to schools:
-Paired Reading Teacher’s Manual
-Paired Reading Tutor guidelines
-Paired Reading A3 wall posters
-Paired Reading Tutor training “Everybody Reads” series available online http://www.mediaconcepts.ie/jcsp/index.html
-Paired Reading student achievement certificate
