The Global Read Aloud (GRA) is a yearly read aloud of books ranging from Kindergarten to 14+ during a set, 6-week period. Teachers choose one book, or the author study collection, and read them to students for read aloud. Teachers and their students then interact with other classrooms around the globe in any way they choose - in a big way or small way, through email, Padlet, Skype, Hangouts, Edmodo, Blogging, Google Groups, or many other ways - with classrooms all over the world.
What you choose to do and the time you devote to the project is entirely up to you. There are some great ideas listed here to get you started. Or you can enlist the help of your friendly technology integration specialist!
Last year, more than 308,000 kids in over 60 countries participated in the project. If you’d like your class to participate, click here to get started.
