Comparing Schools Around the Globe

About this Skype lesson

Our class is studying a variety of countries and trying to answer the question, "What makes a country?" One aspect of our research is comparing education in various countries. We are interested in how school works in places outside of the United States. We would love to Skype for a short interview to ask questions about school schedules, climate and weather, what you are learning about in your classroom, the amount of hours you go to school, and what subjects you study. We are looking for similarities and differences in our learning where we each live.

You can tweet our teacher on Twitter for more information @ktvee.

Thank you!

By the way my pupils are studying their local area, so any cultural comparisons shared between schools would be fantastic for us!
