Global Read Aloud

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!
