Reading Apprenticeship at Green River College

Definition and Use


Think-Aloud encourages readers to engage in metacognitive conversations as they talk out loud about what they are thinking in their heads as they interact with the text.  This makes the "invisible" process of reading more visible. Instructors model a Think-Aloud before students do a pair and share or small group discussion.  Over time, using Think-Alouds deepens readers' thinking, metacognitive conversations and reading comprehension.
