What happens during a virtual visit chat? (How much can we do in 20 minutes?)
Before the virtual visit chat:
- The students read my books
- and think of a question to ask me.
During the virtual visit chat,
- I read to your students and
- answer their questions.
The students wrote their question on a sheet of paper. On the day of the visit, they brought it with them to the computer when it was their turn to talk with me. This helped them stay on task. (It also helped them remember what they wanted to say!)
We used only the computer for this visit, which was nice for the student asking the question. The others had to stand so they could see, so now I ask that you use a large screen. Then everyone in the class can watch the program comfortably.
