The Books Have Been Chosen for the 2107 Global Read Aloud Once a year, starting in early October and running through mid-November, teachers are invited to pick a book from the Global Read Aloud Books to read with students and make as many global connections as possible. Each teacher decides how much time they would like to dedicate and how involved they would like to be. Some people choose to connect with just one class, while others go for as many as possible. The scope and depth of the project is up to you. While there are official tools you can use such as Skype, Twitter, WriteAbout, or Edmodo, you choose the tools that will make the most sense for you. Teachers get a community of other educators to do a global project with, hopefully inspiring them to continue these connections through the year. Youcan sign-up to be part of the Global Read Aloud at https://theglobalreadaloud.com. The selections for Upper Elementary-High School are Peter Brown's The Wild Robot, Victoria J.Coe's Fenway and Hattie, Linda Sue Park's A Long Walk to Water, and Patrick Ness's A Monster Calls. [...click for more]
