An Overview of Read Rhyme Repeat

The model for instruction available on this website is called Read Rhyme Repeat. This model was developed to provide secondary language arts teachers with a product to use in addressing the problem of low reading achievement and other literacy related issues. Research demonstrates that secondary English language arts teachers find Read Rhyme Repeat to be effective at impacting secondary student literacy, secondary student engagement, and in alignment with Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The model is based on the instructional strategy of reader’s theater in rhyme paired with literary and informational text and CCSS assessments.

The Read Rhyme Repeat program is composed of three elements designed to work together. These elements include rhyming reader’s theater scripts; informational text articles, excerpts, or documents; and CCSS graphic assessments. The scripts, informational text, and assessments should be used together in a unit of study. Each rhyming script is joined by related informational text. The central concept of the program is grounded in multiple intelligence and social development theories to drive instructional design and strategy. Because teaching requires artistic skills, the Read Rhyme Repeat model supports the teaching process as being different from one environment and one context to another. As educational connoisseurs, teachers are at liberty to recognize the artistic and creative expression in curriculum and cognition.
