For our second meeting, there appeared three more eager students. We are at the optimum group dynamic of six participants. This number is important in terms of quality control.
Today we learned about the importance of the Timeline. One student produced an amazing timeline of different years when his family helped the community in a variety of ways, for example, he said that his father spoke to a group of students on community values. I encouraged that student to interview his father about his motivation to give that talk. I think he will choose to focus on his mom since she seems to be more altruistic. We’ll soon find out.
At the end of today’s lesson, I gave each of the students an introductory flyer from the Benjamin Franklin Library, which is supported by the U.S. Department of State. I encouraged them to visit the Education U.S.A. office at the library if they are interested in exploring scholarship to study in the United States in the near future. All of them said they would like to do that some day!
