These video clips are from Wednesday's Video Conference and final exchanges of the scripts generated by Sullivan Students as part of being involved in GVI this year.

This series of clips includes students from THIRD PERIOD.

Some are reading parts of scripts from Andres Bello, other's are posing questions of interest for the authors of the plays.

We were excited to at least be able to connect with Mr. Mejia, who took time out of his own schedule from the teacher's strike in Colombia, to be able to help create some closure on this project for our Sullivan students.

¡Muchísimas gracias Sr. Mejía!

We know you will relay your experience this week with your students, when the strike is over and and look forward to hearing about their ideas concerning the scripts we generated.

GVI Students from Sullivan's 3rd period Spanish class, learn from Sr. Nelson Mejía (English teacher to the students at our GVI partner school ANDRES BELLO in Medellín, Colombia), about the current national teacher's strike.

Though students have been out of school in Colombia due to the strike for over three weeks, talking to Mr. Mejía was a definite learning moment for our kids about the state of education in other countries.

Thanks again Mr. Mejía!

Hasta,
Sr. Emilio

Dear Students from Andres Bello:

We were disappointed, but totally understand the situation in Colombia with the strike. The Chicago school system has faced similar issues over the past few years had two possible strikes that were averted this year.

Mr. Mejia has been keeping us informed of the situation and we were excited to be able to have completed our scripts in time to send them to you, and we know you will enjoy reading them at a later date.

We will be in touch again soon and please stay connected to your friends at Sullivan. Several of my students have said that you have added them on Social Networks. I hope you continue to correspond in a more personal way!

Take care and we wish you all of the best in your studies of English!

Hasta pronto,
Sr. Emilio

Estos alumnos de tercera hora también tienen preguntas.

Cheyenne y Alex escribieron sobre un par de novios que tienen una relación que los padres no aceptan. ¿Que harias tu en esa situación?

Fatima escribió sobre una doctora que ayuda en una situación humanitaria. Quiere ser pediatrica para su carrera. ¿Hay algunos de ustedes que también les interesa una profesión de doctor, medico, cirujano, asistente de una clínica etc?

Alan y Soray quieren saber ¿si conectan con la tema, aunque sus protagonistas son vampiros y hombre-lobos?

We look forward to sending you and Mr. Mejia our scenes/short plays from Sullivan some time at the end of this week and coordinating our final exchanges to get your feedback on these stories and how they might connect to your own personal lives or experiences.
