Educators, from throughout the country, are gathered in Las Vegas to train on the Read Aloud Project (RAP). RAP is an effort to create Common Core-aligned lessons for K-2 picture, informational, and chapter books. Lessons include text-dependent questions, Language exploration, Speaking and Listening activities, Writing activities, and creative performance tasks.
Lessons are being created that fall into the following categories: Weather and Seasons, Earth and Space, and Families from Around the World. Additionally, by joining the group, you can gain access to all the training materials.
Access to 12 popular Edmodo groups, including RAP, can be gained by using the links and codes in a document linked here.
