~The Details~

The two elementary schools in the School District of West De Pere are planning to travel across the country for Read Across America Week! We would like to find a classroom in each state to "read" with via Google Hangouts on Air. Each reading session will be archived on YouTube so you can share it with your school/parents/community. 

Dates
Our goal is to complete all virtual meetings during Read Across America week from February 29 to March 4, 2016. We may have to carry this through the month because of the number of sessions that need to be held. 

What you need:
A Google Account
A Device
A Webcam
A Microphone
Planning Sheet (will be updated soon)

How to Help:
If you do not see your state represented on our spreadsheet, please fill out the form on the right. Once you fill out the form, I will match you up with one of our classrooms, send you our teacher's information, determine a set date/time, and give you a sample agenda.  You can find all final information in the spreadsheet to the right! 

Wrapping Up:
Once the Hangout on Air is completed, I will add a "hotspot" to a Thinglink map with a link to the YouTube video that features your meeting.  

If you need help:
Email Jennifer Zurawski @ jzurawski@wdpsd.com
