When we came back in September, Maria and I thought it would be nice to do a joint project. I suggested an ABC book on our country or state. She was able to get her students started on an ABC book of Chile. In December the project was not complete and they were getting ready for summer vacation. Maria and some other teachers worked over their summer to get some of the data to me. We hope to finish the project with new students. We are missing some letters and many illustrations but the site will be updated as the data comes in.
By the end of this school year, we will post several ABC books on Maryland, American History, and personal interest topics. In this way we can share our projects with others students in a different of the world.
E-mail exchanges are fun and can be used as an icebreaker, but trying to work on a similar or joint project allows exchanges of information that can be focused towards the curriculum. Another positive is when the students feel they are producing something of interest and value for others to use as a resource.
The students in Chile were very anxious to see their work posted. So, a decision was made to post what we have so far, hopefully, motivating the new students to complete the project. I want to thank all the teachers in Chile that worked during the summer to get the data and translations to me so I could get started on posting the site.
Check it again
in a month or so to see if we have added more information.
