I received a facebook message from an old colleague about a way to have your students help the people in Japan. I thought this was a great idea and I hope other educators will join in too!
Hope Letters is a website where you can have your students write letters to relief workers and students in Japan. You can have them write letters of hope and encouragement. They translate the letters from English to Japanese for you.
If anyone has any other good suggestions or ideas of things to do with your student, please share!
