World Studies Connects with Spain and Russia

Our World Studies students are using skype, email and Facebook to engage in a cultural exchange with high school students in one school in northern Spain and two schools in Russia.  Our Russia exchange grew out of the Russian students’ and our students’ mutual interest in International Peace Day.  See the students of the British Club of Magnitogorsk, Russia, upping the ante for us by hosting an International Peace Day Conference in Magnitogorsk.  On February 22, we skyped with them about “peace” and “what youth can do to promote peace.”  They left us feeling hopeful that the world can become more peaceful through the use of this technology.  The second Russian school we are excited to be exchanging ideas with is “Gymnasium Number 4,” in Velikiy Novgorod, Russia.  Watch the Gymnasium No. 4 students speaking  English here.  More details forthcoming….
