I am looking into starting a project sometime in mid-February 2009. My students are studying India. I would like to do a project where the students would need to prove how identity of the nation has come about because of geography, religion, history, social levels, and government.
ie: Can you prove your identity from your background? There are some things that will always represent the country.
I was hoping to work with a school to discuss this topic and also have my 8th grade students practice their 21st century skills, especially in communication. Possibility of using email and/or Skype to communicate with each other.
Our school is located in London, England. Anyone interested?
We had a class from Banglaore, India join us last week in Qatar at the Flat Classroom Conference. The teacher is Joan Huntley and I am sure she would be very willing to talk about your project and help organise a collaboration between students. http://flatclassroomconference.ning.com/group/stonehillinternationa... will take you to the school group where you will find Joan and students.
Good luck, and let us know what you end up doing!
