This book shares explicit ideas for starting a group to explore the countries of the world while supporting four goals: 1) Language, including phonology, vocabulary, and modeling for students who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC); 2) Learning, including geography, history, literature and more; 3) Literacy, including building background knowledge and shared writing; and 4) Leisure, including activities for students who are home-schooled or have graduated from school. Tools and general interactive strategies are covered, plus specifics on each topic of study. For example, find out the why, what, how, when and where about using books or videos to provide a country overview or learn about music or pop culture of a country. The book includes scores of links and multiple images showing activities and student work. Explore the world with your students using these engaging, interactive tools and strategies!
