Sometimes students either do not read the text or cannot understand the text. It simply happens to difficult texts and the teacher must deal with this situation. In this scenario, I think that reading in class is extremely helpful.

As a teacher, one cannot just give up a planned day because the majority of students did not read. However, if the teacher just continues on, the students won't gain anything from the lesson. They simply will not have the context. Similarly when the students do not understand the text. If students come in and immediately hands go up saying they read but they couldn't understand, it may be time to read during class.

Reading during class can also have benefits outside these two circumstances. Sometimes having everyone on the same page (literally) and reading together can get students to make connections they did not make at home. Some students just read as quickly as possible at home and do not truly process the material until they read it in class. I think these scenarios make reading in class a great way to promote student understanding and learning without giving up on the material altogether.
