Welcome to the Janusz Korczak International School

Home of International Shared Reading Project

The Korczak School website serves as the online home for the International Shared Reading Project. The International Shared Reading Project is an exercise in international cooperative learning about the Shoah (Holocaust) and its meaning for youth today. Schools from around the world are paired together. Students in the partner schools read the same book in their respective classrooms and then discuss subjects related to the Holocaust via forums hosted on the Korczak International School website.

The International Shared Reading Project has been tailored for two age groups. The middle school project is entitled "Global Citizens: Learning in an International Academic Community", while the high school project is called "Global Citizens: Confronting Indifference and Prejudice".
