Small Group Read-Aloud

Now that you've read Paul Revere's Ride, you will be assigned to a small group and given a section (or passage) of the poem to practice reading aloud. Your teacher can make a copy of the entire poem and will help assign the passages so that your class will be able to present the entire poem!

You may divide up your passage any way you wish. You may even read some parts alone and others all together. Your job is to help your classmates really understand and feel the events and mood of the poem.
