The Global Read Aloud program uses social media to improve student learning. Over a six-week period, classes all over the world read the same book. Using Twitter, Skype, Write About, Edmodo, or another social media platform, students connect and engage with other classes from every corner of the globe to discuss the book. The 2016 Global Read Aloud will take place between October 3 and November 11.
Do your students have what it takes to recognize hate and to try to stop it? The Stronger Than Hate Challenge invites students aged 13–18 to create a video; write a poem, song, or blog; or produce a painting or piece of artwork that demonstrates the chosen medium’s potential to create a community that is stronger than hate.
