My grade 9 #NipRockArt students were thrilled to have the opportunity to speak with Roy MacGregor today via Skype. The class is busy working on their culminating assignment as semester one draws to a close, and his research has helped our class understand the mystery surrounding the death of Tom Thomson. We began by watching his interview with Steve Paikin on The Agenda:
After watching the video, we discussed some of the main ideas and thought of questions we would like to pass along to Mr. MacGregor. At this point, we didn’t know that we would have the chance to speak with him, so our written notes came in extra-handy during our discussion!
We encountered a few technical glitches that threatened to affect the success of our call, but managed to work past the issues and eventually found a way to get both the audio and video working together. At one point, we thought we might have to use my iPhone for our entire chat… I’m so glad this didn’t have to happen!
To top it all off, we were interviewed on CBC radio! If you would like to listen, please click *here*.
The grade 9 art class and I would like to thank Roy MacGregor for sharing his time with us today!
