PALS: A Reading Strategy for Grades 2–6
Please complete the items below. If you have difficulty, go back and review the Perspectives and Resources pages in this module.
- List five benefits of PALS.
- Name the three reading activities for PALS (Grades 2–6) and describe the reading skills targeted by each.
- Describe a typical PALS session. Be sure to discuss the roles of both the students and the teacher.
- Imagine that you are Ms. McVee, a sixth-grade teacher implementing PALS with a class of 29 students. Choose one of the two methods discussed in this module for moving students for partner reading. Explain why you chose this option.
- Again, imagine that you are Ms. McVee. Of your 29 students, three are absent. As a result, three students are without their regular partners. How would you ensure that each student could participate in your regularly scheduled PALS session?
