How I Use It
I use Pen Pal Schools in conjunction with my state standards. I find the lessons that match up with what we are doing in class. We use Pen Pal Schools as a warm up in class and the students love it. They are excited to get into class and see what their Pen Pal had to say from the day before.
My Take
My overall opinion of this project as a teaching tool is that I can not imagine doing class without it now. It has become a major part of our class as we study different cultures.
