My students participated in our 2nd annual World Culture Fair today. They did such a great job!!!! Beyond all of the research and presentation of knowledge, students had to provide two "extras" that demonstrated the wonders of the culture...food samples, dances, costumes, manners, etc. It was SO fun!!
It's a huge commitment of mine that they understand that there's more to the world than their own country. Yep...it ain't all about the good ol' US of A. And more than understanding that point, I want them to actually appreciate other cultures...and thus, other ways of seeing the world. Broadening the horizons, baby. And hopefully broadening their sense of impact!!
