Teaching Through Learning

This week's meeting was filled with new information for our expedition.  We heard several new TED talks and then were given a presentation on teaching in a different language.  We were asked to remember different body parts taught to us in Mandarin.  This exercise showed us what teaching strategies will work well in India.  Many of the children will have a similar experience learning English that we had learning Mandarin.  Towards the end of the meeting we were assigned our teaching area and learned the basics of the first few lessons that we will actually teach in India.  Finally we finished the night with dance rehearsal and our song!
