Reflection Time: Global Projects - The #globalclassroom Chats (June 14/15) | Connect All Schools | Scoop.it

Creating and participating in global projects has fed my soul, but more importantly, it has nurtured the spirit of my students. I have come away with many positives through collaborating and partaking in global projects, but I have learned more through some failures this year. 

 

This weekend, we would like to reflect through sharing what worked and what didn’t work for us.

While the rest of your American peers are seizing opportunities, breaking bread in other countries, building lasting connections and making life-long memories, we as African Americans aren’t even showing up to the table.  And what’s worse is most of us aren’t even aware there is a table to show up to.  For instance in the 2011-2012 academic year, only about 5% of all study abroad students were African American, whereas about 77% were White, and 8% were Latino*.

Newton student reprimanded over pro democracy messages during China semester - The Boston Globe

Newton student reprimanded over pro democracy messages during China semester - The Boston Globe | Connect All Schools | Scoop.it
Newton North senior Henry DeGroot was visiting a school outside Bejing on a semester abroad earlier this year when he decided to have some fun and hopefully make a point by writing pro-democracy messages in the notebook of one of the Chinese students. “Democracy is for cool kids” “Don’t believe the lies your school and government tell you” and “It’s right to rebel” are three of the messages he penned. But when Chinese school officials found out, he was made to serve five hours of detention over there and when he returned home last month he was barred from his prom. Newton school officials say he violated semester abroad rules, embarrassed the principal of the Chinese school that was hosting Newton students and showed so much disrespect for the Chinese that the longstanding program may be harmed. DeGroot sees it differently. He says his rights were abridged by the Newton school system which taught him the importance of civil disobedience and speaking his mind, but punished him when he practiced what he learned.
