Since I've been home it's been interesting to share with students what I learned during my time in Morocco. Although my blog was not active during the trip, several students have checked it out since I returned to be able to see more detail about my experiences (and a few photos that I did not show to everyone). When I got home I made a presentation about the trip including photos and videos that I then shared with each of my classes, which students enjoyed. I also had the letters from the Moroccan students written in response to the letters from my students that were very fun for us to look at and read together. I showed a video of a student named Oussama singing from the Koran, and after some discussion of religious holy texts in different traditions, it was very well received and helped students to "feel" a bit of that special mo. Presentation and discussions also served to challenge some stereotypes that students had about the Arab world. Interesting that my immigrant students (and those who are children of immigrants) were significantly more interested than my native-born students.
