First Questions and Thoughts

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 7 months ago






This page is for your first thoughts and your first questions. As we are getting setting up for our first Skype call which will bring three of our four schools together, this is a space for you to place your thoughts, your questions, and your wonderings about the lives of teens around the globe and your questions about the lives of the students involved in this project from the other nations involved.


Mr. Raisdana's Message


Hello all! This is Mr. Raisdana

I wanted to start by saying how excited I am about this project, and I also wanted to say how impressed I am by all the great questions you all have already raised. As I was looking at them all, I thought it might be a good idea to organize them into categories. That we way you can have a better idea where your interests are. Feel free to change the categories or add new ones.

I also thought it would be a good idea to link your blog to each question if you are going to be discussing it in your blog. That way others will know which area you are interested in and they can contact you. Furthermore, you may want to make a link to your name when you are asking the questions too. So that people can contact you directly to answer your questions, or to let you know that they have answered them. See the example below for what I mean.



For example- if you are going to discuss this question:

Do you like where you go to school? (Anna/ Mr. Fisher's class))

Mr. Raisdana Susie




You would add a link to your blog with your name under the question. That way people can contact you directly to discuss the topic further.
