International Day of the Girl Child - Malala, our role model

Thanks to Ilse who shared this great link of interview with us!!! In Asia, the bias of gender is a serious problem which has caused gender ratio imbalance. The birth rate of baby girls has been decling. Fortunately, this phenomena in Taiwan has been improving a lot and the birth rate of both boys and girls becomes almost equal. However, we care about girls in other places in the world for girls have been suffered for centuries in many aspects of life. .

Class 502 had a Mystery Location Skype call with our teacher friend, Govinda this morning. Children were so glad to meet overseas friends and asked yes/no questions to guess where our guests were from. We also had a surprise! Peggy, a student from National University of Kaohsiung, goes to Nepal to be a volunteer in Govinda’s school. Way to go Peggy ! Wish you a great time there with lovely kids of Nepal.

Voice Thread-Global Classroom 2013-2014

Have Passion to teach, have Passion to learn

Thanks to Janet Barnstable's invitation.  My classes had very joyful experience to collaborate with teachers and classes around the world.  In addition to Todd's Project (Postcard Swap) and Ms. Orly Winer's Puppet Exchange Project, we also did some very interesting projects in GC and HLW.  In the coming new term which begins from Aug. 30, we are going to move on doing international programs with our teacher friends in the world.

A collaborative project of:
Grow Passion!
in your classroom this year.
Dear Global Educators,

We invite you to join us in a project bringing passion into the classroom!  Yes, that's right: passion.  We learn; we teach others; we talk -  about that for which we have a passion.  Why not cultivate such passion in our students.

Ask them about the passions they already have:
  • How does that passion inspire you when things are tough?
  • In what ways can your passion inspire others?
  • Can you be inspired to learn more about another's passion?
What's our plan? 
Visit GVC Clubhouse: Passion Project for in depth details.
  1. Starting with 'InternationalDotDay' in mid September, we ask students to identify their passions.  
  2. Rolling right into 'International Peace Day' we are running world wide Google Hangouts: "Passionate about Peace".
  3. Coming up to Fall with many harvest festivals, thanksgiving celebrations, etc., we will concentrate on how our passions help us grow.  Not just bigger and stronger, but also grow in kindness and understanding.
  4. Winter holidays and gift giving time... in what ways can they share their passion with others in the world?
The sharing is an important part and throughout the fall and early winter we will provide opportunities for you and your students to share their passions.
