What will they do if I sing out of tune? Will they stand up and walk out on me? Well, I’m not taking any chances. I’m definitely not singing. But I could use a little help.
I will be talking to my students at Leganes National High School about the school system in the United States. Since I’m the recycling coordinator at Sullivan, they have also asked me to do a lesson about recycling.
Here’s what I need from you, parents, students, teachers, and friends (of course, guys, you are in overlapping categories!) What are your perspectives on American Public Schools? If you had to briefly describe the American school system to someone on the other side of the world, what would you want them to understand?
Also, what would you like to know about schools in the Philippines? Keep in mind that my assignment will be in a large high school (1,700) in a city of more than 400K. This is the first year they have had a K-12 system. Formerly they were school until 10 th grade. If I understand correctly, this is the first year they have had a graduating class of 12th graders, so it has been a big adjustment. I also hope to be able to travel to remote areas and see different types of schools during the extension of my trip.
So to summarize :
1) Briefly, how would you describe the American School System – from your personal experience and/or general terms.
2) Do you recycle regularly, why or why not? Do your recycling efforts matter to people in Asia, or vice versa?
3) What interests you about schools in Asia? Is here anything you would like me to ask?
Thanks for your help! Please follow my blog over the summer. Hopefully it will be interesting for you and you can definitely help me along the way!
