Scholarly journal features LMES teacher
LEXINGTON, SC — A Lake Murray Elementary teacher’s passion for all things literacy earned her a spot in the latest edition of a statewide scholarly journal.
As part of her master’s program at the University of South Carolina, Fourth-Grade Teacher Tricia M. Huff submitted an article to Reading Matters, a publication of the South Carolina State Council of the International Reading Association.
In “Bringing Read-Alouds Back Alive,” Huff described why read-alouds are one of her favorite instructional practices. She explained that not only can read-alouds introduce a new topic, but teachers can also use them to build community with students and encourage their love of reading.
“A teacher can do so many things in the classroom through read-alouds,” Huff said. “I hope other teachers will learn to love read-aloud time and use it for multiple opportunities in their teaching and learning.”
