Teacher Responsibilities Overview

Teacher preparation is necessary to make sure the implementation of Read Naturally Live runs smoothly. To implement the program, you need to:

  • Place students.
  • Set up the program.
  • Support students as they work through steps.
  • Customize the program for students.
  • Monitor student performance.
  • Communicate with parents/guardians.

Keep in mind the strategies that make the program work: teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring. Also, keep in mind the underlying reasons for the program’s effectiveness:

  • The program increases the time students actually spend reading.
  • The program increases the number of words students read.

As you make decisions about implementing the program, your guiding principles should be:

  • Does this increase the time my students will actually be reading?
  • Does this increase the number of words my students will be reading?

If the answer to either question is "no," rethink your decision.
