The before last, my English Language Learner Geography class did a series of joint projects with classes from around the world composed of students who were also learning English.
It was a great experience and, though I wasn’t able replicate it last year (the influx of Central American refugees created too much extra work for me), I do hope to do it again in the future, and possibly this coming year.
So, if you are in a country other than the United States, your class is composed of twelve-to-eighteen year old’s who are learning English, and you are interested in doing a very short joint project (mainly, we ask questions of your students and they ask questions of us – either in writing or by video), please let me know!
Here are a few of the projects we did (there are others, but some teachers weren’t able to get parental permission to share videos or student writing publicly):
