Marzalek's Class Again!!!

Yesterday (10/16/08) we started to teach again for the fall semester! We are teaching in Mr. Marszalek's class in the new Middletown High School! The students That i was working with were extremely engaged and surprised that they had not heard about Darfur when a genocide has been occurring there since 2003. One girl who hadn't heard of Darfur before was confused as to why the world could let this continue for so long. The first class entailed having the students watch "Voices From Darfur" and then fill out a handout that gave them a preliminary background to the conflict. It was a great first class. The students were engaged and by answering these questions and seeing the video they understood why we were coming into their high school class to teach them.
