This afternoon, we went to the Moroccan American Commission for Educational and Cultural Exchange around the corner from the U.S. Embassy in Morocco. There, a few educational leaders spoke to the group about the Moroccan educational system, its good and bad parts, and how they are working to improve education for their youth.
They also stressed how important it is for us to keep the connection going with our host teachers and work together to give all of our students a more global understanding of the world since Moroccans really aren't that different from Americans.
How would you like to see the connection continued between our classes and
the Moroccan classes I meet when I return?
If I haven't thought of your idea yet, then maybe I can set things up to make it happen!

Extra Credit question #6: What is this set of books called?
We do have them in the United States, they just may not be used often.

As you can see by my hair, it was very windy!
