Fellow Leads Access Students in Discussion on Volunteerism in the United States

For her final class with Moscow Access students, English Language Fellow Dr. Debra Josephson Abrams prepared a requested lesson on volunteerism in the United States. With the help of the American Center, she used Skype to connect Access students with her friends in Illinois, who are avid volunteers for various organizations.

They spoke about the volunteer activities in which they participate, the many volunteer options in their community and in the United States, why they choose to volunteer, and the rewards of volunteering. Students were able to ask questions, and following the Skype video call, Abrams led the students in a four-skills activity about volunteering that enriched students’ language and critical thinking skills.
