In March 2012, Ms. Damon had the opportunity to travel to Ghana with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs Teachers For Global Classrooms program. A portion of this trip was spent in Cape Coast, Ghana, visiting Wesley Girls High School. Mr. Raphael Aidoo-Taylor and Ms. Kate Wilberforce were our host teachers at Wesley Girls. This blog is an opportunity for the students of Ms. Damon and Mr. Taylor to provide an introduction to American and Ghanaian culture for each other.
During the week of May 21st, Ms. Damon’s AP Human Geography students will work in small groups to post descriptions and pictures of key elements of American culture. During the week of May 28th, Wesley Girls students will view these posts, make comments, and in return, post their own descriptions and pictures for Ms. Damon’s students to comment on.
We hope you find this opportunity enjoyable and educational!
