Would you be interested in collaborating on a short term blog project where kids (8th grade) share information about themselves as well as about their country. We are looking for international partners. This is just a quick idea that is up for suggestions.
Day 1: post intro about self
Day 2: read intros, comment and post a current event visual (student created art work and/or image from internet),
Day 3: view visuals, comment and post a current event
Day 4: read current event, comment and post a personal writing piece
Day 5: read personal writing piece and comment.
