ESPN Connects with LS
Lynnville-Sully 8th graders were able to skype with Drew Gallagher, a producer from ESPN. Drew produced "The Man in the Red Bandana. He provided students with the actual script written by Tom Rinaldi. Students were able to look and learn at how the script was created and then produced into the video. Six students led two different skype sessions with Drew. He talked about everything from knowing Welles Crowther personally (the Man in the Red Bandana), advice on how to do interviews, the impact this video has made, and so much more.
Tom Rinaldi answers questions provided by an LS 8th grader. He taped this session while at Arizona University for College Game Day.
Videos watched as we look at the "Power of One" to start the year.
With the help of Mrs. Foster and local fire departments, the 8th graders get to try on fire gear as they think about what it may be like being a first responder as they learn about 911.
8th graders Skype with retired fire chief Mr. Lamb from Boston.
LS eighth graders have the chance to Skype with Mrs. Wesner and her 7th graders from Boston!
Mrs. Wesner is a teacher in the Boston area. She has been a part of the Red Bandana Curriculum and with the help of Mrs. Crowther, we were able to have the chance to Skype with her and her students from Boston. Students asked questions that ranged from Welles (The Man in the Red Bandana), 9-11, The Boston "Bombing", the term Boston Strong, and of course explored what life may be like in a larger city like Boston. Eighth graders were also able to share what life is like in Iowa.
