Discussion Guide for If I Ever Get Out of Here
Though it is common for students to begin reading books like If I Ever Get Out of Here on their own, teachers often read aloud a chapter at a time, or, students take turns reading aloud in small reading groups. Parents can do that, too, in the car or in the home. Reading a chapter aloud creates an opportunity for what reading specialists call “grand conversations,” which are active discussions of something they’ve just read.
