I have a middle school teacher in my school who may be interested. He teaches a global issues course. The students use a wiki to discuss various global topics. His name is James Mcdermid. you can reach him at email@example.com. He would be happy to hear from you. We are located in North Western NJ.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. What subjects are you covering in 6'th grade. It is my social studies department that is most interested in connecting. However, i am sure i can find interest from other departments.
My name is Katie Gleason. I teach at Trevor Day School in New York City. I am looking for another 6th grade class to Skype with and / or video conference with to discuss The Giver. Would this be of interest to you and your students? I have about 53 students.
Unfortunately, I don't have sixth graders during the spring semester. Perhaps in the fall we could do this with our classes. Do you have a list of books you read with your sixth graders in the fall? I could provide the list to the LA teachers and then in Tech we could do some discussion.
My skype name is lisettecasey if you want to add me to your contacts. Just send me a brief note explaining who you are so I accept the invitation.
We can talk further.
