Plus 6-20-2014: Global Read Aloud

Pernille Ripp, a 5th grade teacher in Wisconsin, started Global Read Aloud in the summer of 2010 to expand the global collaboration of her students.
Participating educators choose a book to read aloud to their students during a certain time period during which they try to make as many global connections as possible.

Individual teachers decide how much time they would like to dedicate to Global Read Aloud and how deeply they would like to be involved. You can connect with just one class or go for as many as possible.
Tools such as Twitter, Skype, Edmodo, wikis, email, regular mail, and others have been used to make these global connections.  Last year more than 144,000 students in more than 30 countries on 6 different continents were represented.
The official start date for this year's project is October 6th, 2014. The book choices are:
  • The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo
  • The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm
  • One For the Murphy's by Lyndy Mullaly Hunt
  • The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

You can sign up to participate in Global Read Aloud here.
