The Masked Reader

Inspired by the excitement of "The Masked Singer," our school presents "The Masked Reader"! In this engaging activity, teachers become mysterious masked readers, hiding their identities behind animated Memojis using the Clips app on their iPads or iPhones. Students will have the thrilling task of guessing which teacher is behind the mask as they listen to them read excerpts from their favorite books or recite captivating poems.

The primary objective of "The Masked Reader" is to foster a love for reading and literature while adding an element of fun and mystery to the learning environment. By guessing the masked reader's identity, students engage actively with the texts presented, enhancing their comprehension and critical thinking skills. #DPtech

Fantastic idea. I teach HS students. We have a reading buddy program and I think my students could be the masked reader for younger students.
