Hello, I am French teacher and I teach a business course in English for 8th and 9th grade students (age : 16-18), and we would love to create a cross-cultural experience that would begin in October and extend as long as you are comfortable (even through the end of the school year). We are open to collaborating with students from another country. Our classroom is located in Sedan (France) and our school is comprised of a fairly diverse population.
We are Skype capable, have constant access to computers and the internet, and would be willing to email or set up blogs as another form of communication.
I do not have a specific project in mind, but instead intend on being flexible to your needs as the curriculum for my course is very flexible. Ideally, we would be able to create projects reflecting our respective cultures and share them online for comment. I love the idea of digital storytelling, and would happily engage in this type of project as I know of several great forums for digital storytelling that I've been dying to try out. Additionally, I would enjoy more frequent correspondence in the form of emails or blog posts as well. However, as I said, we are very open to suggestions!
Let me know if you are available or interested either by replying to my post or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to hear from you!
