I’m currently collecting questions from every student at SMA Khadijah to ask students at Taft High, and hoping the students at Taft will come up with their own.
Here’s my vision for this whole thing… at least for the first round:
Collect the written questions from Indonesian students and post the most common/interesting questions on a blog that I still need to create. Students in Oregon will then be able to submit their own answers (I will be moderating all posts) as comments on the blog, that way, each individual is able to give a personal answer, and not just the stereotype of his or her country. Then, Taft students will be able to send in their own questions for the Khadijah students to answer. I hope that students will post links, video, pictures, all that. I want them to share.
I know that the really hard part is going to be getting Taft students to submit questions and answers, since I haven’t really corresponded with students directly, only staff. And the more I talk with teachers here at Khadijah, the more questions they have about American schools, so I’m really hoping that faculty at Taft will be willing to respond to questions as well… and vise-versa, of course.
Aaaand many of you have been asking me about pictures on facebook… well, I’m pretty sure facebook hates me. I haven’t been able to upload a single photo successfully since I got here. Believe me, I’m trying! Photos sooner or later 🙂
Happy fall, Oregon. I miss you. It’s hot here.
