A NEW WIKI AND BOOK PROJECTS ABOUT A SHERLOCK HOLMES' STORY

Our latest news involve lots of online communication, story reading and loads of fun, as we have been in for yet another surprise by Ms Aniella Lebeau and her students in France: a second reading competition! (Details about the first one here.) This time our venture involved the participation of the students in C' Class, who were brave enough to do all the work solely on the Internet! They read a Sherlock Holmes' story proposed by Ms Lebeau and published their own reading activities about it on this specific wiki page. When you visit it, you will have to click on each team's name to view the activities its members prepared.

Not only were these budding wiki writers not afraid to sample what a paperless classroom is like, but they also left their comments on the story, an example which was later followed by some of their French e-pals. As a final homework assignment, they drew and described their favorite scene from the story to be seen below. What is now left is the last stage of the competition; that is, to try to do the activities made by the French students in class in the time allotted, which is scheduled to take place at the beginning of February.

Wish us luck and stay tuned for more news!
