8th graders Skype with Canada

What a fun day it was in the library!  Today Mrs. Koshollek's Block 2 students had the opportunity to Skype with a class in Canada about The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.  Students took turns asking discussion questions and responding to questions from the other school.  Although many students were a bit nervous at first, everyone did a great job responding thoughtfully and articulately.  Mrs. Koshollek's students will be Skyping with this group twice a week until everyone has finished reading the book.  The Canadian students will also be commenting on our students' book blogs as well.  We are so excited to learn more about our Canadian friends as we move through this project.
