Students in my tenth grade English class located in a suburb of Philadelphia have started to read Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner. We would love to connect with other classes that are also reading this pivotal novel set in Afghanistan. So, let's chat! We would like to host a Google Hangout on Tuesday, December 17, 2013. We'll set up two different chats - one at 9:45 am - 10:15ish EST and another between 1:15 pm - 1:45ish EST. To join us, you will need a Google+ account. I'll record the event so that any participants can later access it via YouTube. If there's a particular theme or question that you would like our classes to focus on as we discuss the novel, let me know! Otherwise, we'll keep the chat general, perhaps starting with the question "What is one question that you would ask the author?" and let students respond to one another from there.
Please don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to connecting with you and your students!
