2017: Grade 10 Introductions to German Penpals
Hi there from far away! Below are the Introductions the Canadian students have made to share with our new German friends. We’re really looking forward to whatever we each gain from this exchange of cultures and ideas!
Exciting times for #ELAB10 students!! We’ve got new #penpals and are just starting our first writing post directed to them. Our pals are from #Germany and are in gr9, which we think is actually equal to our gr10. We’ve created introductions to send to them and their teacher said they’re going to look through them and “call dibs” to pick who they’ll pair up with. The German students will be writing in English, but it’s not their first language, so each #Canadian student will have 2 partners (and one with 3). Now… what to write them!? They’ll each initiate a conversation topic every two weeks – one started by a Canadian student about one of our recent #ELA topics they want to share/hear feedback on and one topic initiated by a #Germanstudent for the same exchange of ideas. We’re excited to try this out! We’ll be using our #elablogs and the key thing that was brought up today was they’ll have a real audience! #realworldlearning #culturalexchange #realtopics #openminded #Saskteacher
Beside each name if their Introduction PDF.
Below each name is their first Post/Letter written to you! Good luck getting started!
