    • Best way to become a better reader
    • It is fun
  3. Identify the behaviors of Read to Self on I-chart
  4. Model most-desirable behaviors
  5. Model least-desirable, then most-desirable behaviors (same student)
  6. Students check in with Read to Self; teacher places students around the room
  7. Practice and build stamina
  8. Stay out of the way; when necessary, confer and set behavior goals
