The article discusses the use of oral reading in high school science education. The author suggests oral reading can help engage students because listening comprehension is often stronger than reading comprehension for students. She suggests it can also promote reading by providing a role model and that the use of open-ended questions can encourage students to participate. The author recommends nonfiction books such as "Never Cry Wolf," by Farley Mowat.
