Towards the end of the school year the Hybrid Huskies will study Latin America in social studies. Students are going to have the opportunity to learn about Latin American culture and geography through a pen-pal project. However, as I am planning this with a teacher in Rio de Janeiro, I am learning that there will be a language barrier…only a small percentage of her students speak English. So, were seeing this as a creative opportunity for the students to take photographs representing their daily lives, the geography surrounding them and eventually write a caption or word as the basis for this cross-cultural exchange.
To make this pie-in-the-sky dream come true, I am partnering with a non-profit called Every Person Has a Story.
