Reading Books to Students Online: As you are considering live and/or recorded virtual readings during literacy activities, please be aware that you will need the publisher's permission before live and/or recorded reading of a book(s) to students. Fortunately, many publishers have already granted permission for read alouds in virtual learning environments due to the Covid-19 crisis. However, there are specific guidelines for you to follow.
At the beginning of the virtual reading, you must state to the intended audience that “permission has been granted by (name of publisher) to read (title of book) written by (name of author)”. Also, you should display the cover of the book. You might think that if you are doing it within a “closed” meeting, this will not be necessary, but it is. The only exceptions would be if you are reading a resource book purchased by DeKalb as part of instructional materials.
