  • Student Work We Like: "How to Learn Your Way Around Hudson Middle School"

    "Welcome to all you fifth graders that will be in Hudson Middle School next year! We will guide you to success through this video..."  

    This VoiceThread was created by students at Hudson River Middle School in NYC, to give incoming 5th graders a guide to their new school. VoiceThread is an excellent application for engaging students in conversations about images and publishing the collective work of a classroom.
