ABOUT STAR READ-ALOUD PRACTICES
STAR is a set of interactive and innovative read-aloud practices designed for educators and caregivers. STAR utilizes intentional read-aloud practices and mindful scaffolding strategies to encourage and strengthen young children’s knowledge and awareness of print. The STAR programs have adopted the name STAR Read-Aloud Practices following years of research that have demonstrated shared book reading as an effective means for advancing emergent-literacy skills.
