Hello iCollaboratory members!
Welcome to the 2012-13 school year in the iCollaboratory.
We have many new and updated projects for you to choose from this year. The year-long list may be found at http://www.icollaboratory.org/projects/icollaboratory2012fallprojects. Let us tell you about the ones this fall.
We are working hard to get all projects linked to Common Core Standards. You will find them in the beginning of each project.

We are starting in September with three NEW projects!
Have you ever wondered who would be elected if students could vote?
Do your students know about the candidates that could become President of the United States?
In this project, students take a demographic survey, research presidential candidates, create political advertisements and participate in a mock election just a few days before the national presidential election. You can compare the student vote to the national vote! You’ll be able to see how students from various states voted, too.
We look forward to seeing ALL your students in this project. The more students in the project, the better it will be!
The Moon Over Us 欢迎来到《我们上方的月亮》
The Moon Over Us is a collaboration with schools in Beijing. It will run from September 4 to October 7. After the first project we will be continuing with additional collaborations. The iCollaboratory, http://www.icollaboratory.org, is partnering with Global Hands-on Universe and GTTP.
“我们上方的月亮”是一个与美国学校的合作项目。 它将从9月4日一直进行到10月7日。在第一个项目之后，我们将继续其他的合作。在这个项目中，iCollaboratory （http://www.icollaboratory.org).
In the project, students aged 10-16 and their teachers from around the world share information about the moon and discuss this information by commenting on each other’s web pages.
If you are interested in participating in the project, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
如果你对参加这个项目有兴趣，请发邮件到 email@example.com 或 firstname.lastname@example.org
Activities in this project include:
Scariest Stories and Fall Poetry
Whether it be a scary story or a fall poem, we encourage students to share their literary work and discuss it with one another. Students can use this project to develop their writing skills by sharing and discussing their narrated and/or illustrated (optional) writing in our online community.
The Scariest Stories project activities described below are designed to take about one hour a week in a school computer lab or on a set of classroom computers. Teachers should plan to spend an hour a week in addition to the computer time. Students who get involved spend more time writing, sharing and discussing their stories.
More information or help: email@example.com or 847 331 4633 before 8:00 pm CT.
We look forward to seeing you in many projects this year!
The iCollaboratory Team,
Bonnie Thurber, Theresa Allen, Gayle Greenwald, Karen Ladendorf, Ruth Shunick and Linda Smentek
P. S. All projects from past years are also available. You need only to ask to have one made available for you.
