At the end of the 2013-2014 school year, several of my students participated in the Students Around the Globe project. The Students Around the Globe project works to connect various countries to exchange ideas while learning the English language. My students had a unique opportunity to participate. Since we worked with a small all-girls school, there were several requirements:
- Fluent English Speaker
- Willing to share information about your culture and environment
- Able to avoid inappropriate topics
- Desire to help others learn English
- Develop life-long connections
- Have an Edmodo account
Students received extra credit in my class for participating in this thrilling project! All e-pal communication occurred on Edmodo to protect the safety of all students involved. I received many positive responses, and I hope to continue working with Students Around the Globe to enrich the lives of each one of my future students.
There are moments when you simply want to listen to a beautiful story instead of reading each word the old fashioned way. If you find yourself in one of these moods, try to find an intriguing text via audiobook. There are many sites to choose from, but here are a few suggested sites.
If you try one out, tell me about your experience in the comment section. Happy Listening!
