Talking to Students about the Violence in Baltimore

The violence in Baltimore has hit close to home for Middle School teacher Andrea Hobson.  Her sister, Christi, lives less than a mile away from where some of the most dangerous activity is happening. Christi is a teacher and was forced to stay home today, and Andrea was able to have her speak with her classes through Google Hang Out.  What a great activity this was to bring the realization of what is happening just a few states away from us. 

Google Hang Outs are a simple thing to do.  We can connect with anyone who has a Google Account. Check out this website for ideas for your class.  Let me know and we can set up a hangout for you and your students.
