  • Dear Sushmita,

    First I need to apologize for never getting back to you last spring. Somehow or another participating in this Ning fell off my radar completely. I would love to work on something collaborative this year. We are about to look at the world in the 12th-14 centuries but will quickly after October be heading into the interconnected world of the 15th and 16 centuries. I would be very interested in collaborating.

    My students are 11th and 12th graders. I only have 8 in my section this year.


    Let me know.



  • Hi Sushmita,

    Its great to interact with someone with the same name,thanks for your message. The Std 6&7 students worked on a project about the changes that take place in a country when people of another area migrates and settles in a another country, eg. what changes have been seen and felt in India after the Aryans, Mongols, Mughala and Europeans settled in India-- Chanes in architecture, clothes, food etc. This we did with India, U.A.E. and U.S.A. as we felt these countries have gone through major  changes.The response was good, students presented the project on charts with info and pictures, models of architecture and small skits. The whole project was really enjoyable, it was presented to the whole of the Secondary Section  ie. to students upto Std 10.May be you can try it out with your students too. It generates interest in the subject and they learn a lot.

    Do keep in touch.

  • Hi Sushmita,
    My email is kelly@worldsavvy.org - thanks for letting me know about your ning and the BRIC project - sounds interesting. In addition, World Savvy has an academic program for youth in Minneapolis-St. Paul that might be of interest to you, and a good supplement to this project.

  • Hi Suhimita,
    I teach Freire's theory in a very interactive way to my college and high school students through movies and the theatre of the oppressed. I have adapted it to suit the 12-21 age group and use it extensively in my residential peace camps which we do internationally. Have a look at our website www.multiculturalvillage.org and see how we use experiential learning, service learning and dialogue for freedom from oppression.

    Let me know how I may help.
