“Collaboration is necessary to show students that they are part of something bigger than them”
This is the ‘why’ of Pernille Ripp’s decision to start the Global Read Aloud back in 2010.
I want to encourage and foster connected learning.
I want to give kiwi students the opportunity to connect, share, and discuss learning by flattening the walls of our classrooms.
I want to develop a love of books and reading among all kids.
I want to show the power of taking yourself out of reality through story.
I want to do this through a ‘read aloud’ using the power of expression.
I want to have kids understand that they are a part of something bigger than them.
