Through discussion topics posted to this website, we will be able to break down the four walls of our classrooms and collaborate with other teachers and students around the world. My hope is that this platform will provide additional excitement around reading and expand students' worldview.
A few basic guidelines to ensure this runs smoothly:
To participate in a conversation, submit a comment on the appropriate page. Your comment will post immediately. Your students can also provide video responses via Flipgrid. A link will be provided in the discussion topic post. Please note that your students' reactions to posted videos will show immediately, but new videos will post once approved by me. I'm just monitoring for obvious reasons...making sure responses contribute to the topic and that this remains a safe space for our kids.
If you would like to submit a video or project to share with the rest of the world, you can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will post it to the homepage or appropriate subsection so others can view and comment on it. When emailing me, please give your class a name and share your city, state (if applicable), and country (Ex: Mrs. Caso's 5th Grade - Coronado, CA, USA).
