Our "practice" Google Hangout with the Headmaster of School 13, Mr. Anatoliy went great! We came up with topics/issues that we want to discuss during our first official e-meeting. Both of our schools are ecstatic for this videoconference series as we can learn more about what it is like to go to school in a part of Ukraine directly affected by military conflict, and they can learn about what it is like to be a high schooler in America.
1st Official Videoconference: Thursday, September 29th, 7:30 AM @ NW225
Links to learn more about the situation in Ukraine: (just to give you a broad picture)
Brainstorm questions to ask the students!
You can ask about what a typical school day looks like for them, whether or not they feel like their rights are protected, what stereotypes they know about Americans, etc.
