Using Read-Aloud and Video-Aloud to Cultivate Community & Conversation, K-6 (No cost for TMI PLC and Literacy Alliance Members)

Using Read Aloud and Video Aloud to Cultivate Community & Conversation (K-6) 

Read aloud is the cornerstone of so many classrooms By using “read aloud 2.0” and video aloud, we can also teach, support, and amplify collaboration and conversation. By creatively reimagining a traditional read aloud, we provide vision and context for upcoming instruction. Students see and feel the purpose of learning and are prepared to confidently take action. In this session, we will discuss and plan read aloud 2.0 and video aloud experiences. Additionally, participants will learn how to revisit texts for a wide variety of instructional purposes. Margaret Wheatley once said, “I believe we can change the world if we start talking to one another again." By infusing read aloud and video aloud into all subjects, we cultivate a classroom community prepared to do just this.

PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BRING: A device, 2-3 read alouds, and access to a current or upcoming unit.

Audience: All Grade K-6 Teachers, Coaches and Administrators
Instructor: Mrs. Pamela Koutrakos, TMI/Gravity Goldberg, LLC Education Lead ELA/Literacy Specialist
