Paired 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 available to order:
• 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.
