One Day in the Life: Learning through the Eyes of their Global Peers

Students in the BRIDGE Program are learning authentically about the real word – through the eyes of their global peers. In small groups or individually, students create documentary photographs, drawings, or paintings on assigned themes. For six weeks, classrooms in Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, the U.S., and Yemen engage in cross-cultural communication in an asynchronous discussion forum and sharing of media.  Learn more about their collaborative project.

Introductions: Classrooms began their virtual exchange with introductions. Students shared photos, name poems, and information about themselves.
