Creating a global classroom is a hot topic. Teachers are trying to find ways in which their students can collaborate across state lines, and even country lines.
Valerie Cypert is a Language Arts teacher over at Miller Middle School and has participated in a Global Read Aloud with classrooms in New York and British Columbia. Her students have been communicating via Skype and Google on the book “Out of my Mind” by Sharon Draper.
Students are experiencing celebrity readers in their classrooms – their teachers and administrators. One class was lucky enough to have Dr. Gudalewicz visit!
To keep up with their experiences with Global Read Aloud, follow the students blogs, and learn more check out Ms Cyperts Blog: MsCypert.wordpress.com
