China Trip Revisited

In April of 2012, several students from the middle schools in Orange and Bethany traveled to China under the guidance of Bo Wu, Mandarin Chinese teacher, Dr.Dellinger, principal at Bethany, Kathy Fuller-Cutler, principal at Orange, and John Randall, science teacher from Bethany. The kids had a wonderful time, and as a culminating activity upon their return, they worked with me to create a Voice Thread remembrance of the trip. They submitted 3 or 4 of their favorite photos to me, which I uploaded to a VoiceThread project. Each student then signed into his/her VT account and added narration to the photos submitted. It was really a nice way to remember the highlights of the trip. Now, nearly a year later, the students have decided they would like to have a reunion to discuss fond memories. I am embedding the video created from the VT in this post. It is about 19 minutes long, but it is an example of a great collaborative project. The actual VT is still open, and students might add reflections to it. Enjoy!

Mrs. Stanley - missing all of you!
