The UNICEF chapter at Clear Brook High School in Houston, Texas started 5 years ago and has dramatically increased in size every year. Although this year poses many challenges, we firmly believe that our club, in partnership with Clear Brook High School's National Honor Society, can continue to make an impact by fundraising, advocating and spreading awareness in our community.
Created by the UNICEF club at Mayo High School in Rochester, MN, Project Read Aloud is an opportunity for high school students to give back to their community by sending videos of themselves reading children’s books to CCISD elementary schools in the Houston area. This activity is entirely virtual, making it safe and accessible for anyone to participate!
Video must be in a horz frame - Landscape orientation
Include an introduction for every video (Name (optional) and title of book and author)
“Hello my name is ____ and I’ll be reading _____ by ____.” OR “Hello, I’ll be reading ____ by ____.”
Aim for a video length between 3 min to 6 min
Participants must show their face and the pages of the book in video.
If possible, please try to invert the video so that words on the pages aren't reflected
Ebooks can also be used but pages must still be shown on a separate device or the reader can screen share the book and show their face
Participants can also read a book with others: Multiple participants can get on a group call and record themselves reading different characters in a book to make the video more engaging.
