I am working with at least one other teacher in The states on this so...I had class today with one of four ninth grade classes and 19 of 40 students are interested in a letter exchange program...There are 11 more classes of 40 students to pitch the idea to...we could be in for a very big project...I hope so!Most of the interests of this group are pop culture based as well as boys who want to write to girls and girls who want to write to boys...Please get back to me asap re* the # of students (Junior high school please) and the kind of materials info etc they can exchange... i have never done this before but I think it is a great way to get the students to realize that another language can be useful...not just a grade you have to earn...I want this to be fun ... I'm thinking short letters, postcards, stickers, photos and stamps...drawings..and maybe ...for those students who really take it seriously...a cd or some other cool item that is really hard to come by...what do you think? I anxiously await your thoughts...Bridget"
