On September 11, 1776, representatives of the Colonists and the British met in Staten Island, NY to discuss how they could avoid fighting the American Revolution. The meeting only lasted a few hours and the war continued. More information about this historic meeting is at www.theconferencehouse.org
. With today's technology, wouldn't it be great if students in New York and London could meet again to negotiate a peace arrangement that could have ended the revolution. Trading email would be the easiest way. Getting into private chat rooms would also be good. Creating a website with their final "treaty" would be wonderful.
With today's technology, students can "negotiate" about many different topics with other students...down the hall or across the world.
