My Take

Pen Pal Schools offers fantastic opportunities for connecting students to content areas and to other classrooms! Being able to sign up for lessons that fit my time schedule and my curricular goals makes the platform easy and flexible to use. The variety of lesson topics are engaging for students. The responses from other pen pals around the world allows for a better understanding of the world.

How I Use It

Pen Pal Schools is an excellent way to combine curricular areas. I use the topics to build background knowledge. The lessons spark rich conversations and deeper dives into topics. Being paired with other students from around the world strengthens writing skills as well as building empathy among students.
