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.
