Need Skype Partner Class – 8th Grade Social Studies

Help! Can anyone help me find another 8th grade social studies class? Here’s what my teacher wants to do:

Dates: February 22 – March 4 (M-F) (negotiable)
10:40 – 11:25 a.m. EST

A Southwestern, rural Michigan eighth grade class, studying the Great Depression, would like to connect through Skype, with a class from a different region in the United States (or elsewhere in the world). The students are interested in finding out how a different region of the United States (or the world) experienced the Great Depression. The Michigan students will PowerPoint to present discussion on the effects of the Great Depression in this part of Michigan.

Even if you could connect and listen to our class presentation it would be great. Please help!

  1. Hi Arlene,

    I think we may be able to help you out. I am an IT Consultant for the Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union and this fits with some projects we are implementing.

    Our schools are on break ATM, but I will float this at our Middle School ASAP next week and let you know.
