Have you heard of The Read Aloud Project?
If offering tutoring or After-School reading projects or just story time The Read Aloud Project could help you with material and lesson/discussion structure and it’s free.
With questions directed at the text rather than students’ experiences the Read Aloud Project focuses on content and vocabulary. Earlier this month EdWeek discussed vocabulary being the quality of conversation rather than a dearth of words and Read Aloud reinforces this concept.
The Washington-based Council of the Great City Schools, which represents large urban districts, and Student Achievement Partners, in New York City, which supports common-core implementation, launched the project in 2013 to build a warehouse of free common-core-aligned lessons that teachers can use as is, or modify to fit their students’ needs.
The RAP resources have been developed by classroom teachers from throughout the country and are free. They are matched to the instructional shifts and ensure that all students are working with complex text and its academic vocabulary. You can learn more about the RAP and join the Edmodo group and find lesson plans here.
