  • On a Scale of 4A to 6B... (Various Teaching Styles I've Encountered at my School)

    Travel Journal from Peru Cusco, Peru | Tue Jul 12, 2011

    July 11, 2011             After three years of attending an enormous public university, I have truly come to appreciate how true the statement is that a professor “makes or breaks” any class.

    Travel Journal from Peru Peru | Fri Jul 01, 2011

    Buenos Dias! It's a very rainy day here in Urubamba- naturally with little to do to begin with- with the sun peeking threw the clouds I find myself a little antsy today. I had Tomales this morning for breakfast and they were fantastic. Last night I had spanish classes with the other volunteers- as I do everyday, afterwards we were informed that our small little 4 by 4 classroom was about …
