Print Friendly, PDF & Email

My Core 4 language arts class viewed a livestream webcast hosted by Discovery Education featuring First Lady Michelle Obama and Jeffrey Woods, and American student from Washington, DC who is currently studying abroad in China. Mrs. Obama and Woods field questions submitted by students around the world who were curious about how the First Lady prepared for the trip, what she found similar about American and Chinese cultures, and the challenges of acquiring a foreign language. Woods answered questions about his own experience as a foreign student.

After the webcast ended, students participated in a Google Hangout with Ashley Hayes, a Grady High School (Atlanta, Georgia) and Columbia University graduate who has visited China and studies Mandarin Chinese.

Zena Brown, an APS instructional technologist, faciliated the events and shared it on Twitter.
