The Global Read Aloud is a project facilitated by the passionate Pernille Ripp, a 5th grade teacher in Wisconsin. Here she explains in her own words what the Global Read Aloud is:
The premise of the Global Read Aloud project is surprisingly simple, and can have surprising results. Students from all over the world listen to the same story being read aloud to them, then they connect with other students to talk about what they have read. I'll know more about the activities we will do with the story and what students we will connect with as the start date of October 6 approaches.
Quadblogging is another great way to connect with students from around the world.
