I am looking for experts on World History, Ancient to European Exploration, who would be willing to have 7th graders interview them on topics we have been working on over the year. These (skype or other web communication) will be recorded and used on our student created online textbook. [ http://dgh.wikispaces.com/ ]New Link
The students have taken the state standards and over the last five years have created their own "students history" of world history. They are 12, but some of the work is outstanding, other parts need help, but the process moves forward. The link below shows one example of the student made documentary by a 12 year old (written, directed and created by him). I think it will give an example of what we are doing.

If you are interested in helping us out we are looking for people who would have a passion about the following: Ancient Rome and Greece enduring impacts, All topics in the Middle Ages--Feudalism, Religion, Economics, Magna Carta, Black Death, Crusades, Spanish Inquisition, Mongols, and the Renaissance.
We would only need a Skype name and a good time between 8-3 to contact you for a 15-20 minutes discussion. Kids will send questions in advance and we do ask permission to post your interview for other student to hear in the years to come.
Please email me directly if you are interested
