Project Summary :
virtual exchange project and its components were designed critically to engage
students with their literacy development. The first assignment, The Language
Narrative, gave them the opportunity to work on narrative writing as a catalyst
for reflective investigation. The focus of that reflection was their background
and identity as a reader and writer. The hope was that together the
students—individually, in their collaborative pairs, and as a whole class in
discussion—would explore what it means to learn to read and write. Finally, as
this was a collaborative project, it helped students develop their
collaborative skills and cross-cultural perspectives.
students were paired in groups and to begin the project the first step was that
the students introduced each other.
second stage was individual writing and peer review. Students from both courses
composed a Literacy Narrative – the assignment involved narrative, descriptive
and analytical/reflective writing.
final stage of the project was to reflect on what they had learned through the
process. Students discussed the different experience they went
through, as they engaged with one another; they collaboratively composed an
essay that compared their experiences.
