-What happens after I sign my class up for the Read for Good Challenge?
Please ensure that you have registered to participate in the Read for Good Challenge by using the form above by 11:59 pm on September 30, 2019. The Read for Good Challenge will officially run between October 7 (12:01 am) and November 8 (11:59 pm), 2019.
Prior to the starting the challenge, you’ll receive instructions via email that include a short slide show presentation that you may use to help your learners get started and will highlight details about how their voices make a difference for more than 280,000 refugees in Uganda.
You may wish to schedule in-class time to participate and book your school’s laptop or iPad cart (3rd generation, post-2011 – or newer) so that students are equipped to read-aloud through Simbi’s online reading platform. Remember that every book read-aloud counts and will gain your class additional entries for our grand prizes!
How do my learners’ voices create global impact?
Your learners will have the opportuinity to share their voice through our online reading platform and read-aloud to support the literacy of 280,000 refugees in the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement in Uganda.
After your learners read-aloud to their books, they will have the option to submit their narration to our global library if their reading accuracy is at least 75% correct.
As their narration is read-along to, we’ll email their account with updates about their global impact! Please note that all read-aloud narrations, even without high enough accuracy, count towards the Read for Good Challenge.
