We are launching the Read-aloud Alignment Project (RAP) in
December just for the K-2 grade band.
Essentially, we will invite participants to propose titles of books (chapter
and picture) that represent works well worth reading. We’ll gather together to
make questions worth answering and activities worth doing with those who can
come to the two day training the Council of the Great City Schools and Student
Achievement Partners will hold in Atlanta this December. It will be similar
hands-on training to that provided with BAP and AAP.
The training will also include how to locate, select and
evaluate good informational articles and books to group as sets to connect to
the read aloud anchor. They will build knowledge systematically on a topic. The
sets will be a chance for your students to get a volume of reading practice on
one topic, or can be a study unit you all do together. Once trained, teams will return home and
continue to develop excellent questions and standards-aligned activities for
other great read-aloud books. We will host the RAP resources as they are written
and reviewed just as we have with all the AAP and BAP revisions.
