I am teaching students with special needs, so I have small classes. I mostly have individual lessons or teach small groups. But we have different school events. There is a group of 7 students who love participating in contests and projects. They are good at IT, all of the students have powerful computers and high-speed Interent connection at home, as most of their lessons are online. They come to school once or twice a week too.
Margo, I have added your Skype name to my list.
Hope to speak to you soon,
P.S. While doing a training course in December, I was asked to show some of my students' works. You can also see them here, if you like.
I am a teacher from Moscow. And I teach 8-formers English. My students have Macs at home as they all learn at a distance school. They communicate via Skype a lot. I would like my students to participate in an international project too. Hope it will be fun.
My students are pre-service teachers in a teacher credential program. It would be interesting to set up a skype session so that my students could say hello to your 8th graders. Would you be interested in that?
