The school year has begun, and you are settling into your classroom … Why not go beyond the curriculum to give your students a first-hand experience in their global education?
PTPI’s School & Classroom Program links classes in different countries for pen-pal exchanges and projects that improve cultural understanding and encourage friendship. Since it was created, this free program has served more than 3,000 teachers with 200,000 students in 126 countries – and we want you to join now!
When two groups are matched, contact details are exchanged between the teachers so that they may communicate directly. Each teacher receives a Program Manual with suggested projects and tips for success. We encourage teachers to modify or incorporate additional concepts or technology to best suit their needs, goals and resources.
Successful partnerships start with consistent communication. Remember, you are a representative of your country, as are your students. This allows for conversations with your students about letter writing etiquette, punctuation, grammar and spelling. How better can you introduce these important topics while motivating and engaging your students?
