I had another bout with diarrhea last night, but several doses of medicine got me back in shape by this morning. I was a bit draggy and low on energy today. I hope we can get to Sunday without further incidents.
On Saturday I asked the students to pay attention during the weekend to any ways that what they learned last week affected their thinking about situations they were in or caused them to see things differently. We spent quite a bit of time recording their experiences. We learned that last week did have a positive effect on them. It remains to be seen how much of it lasts well into the future.
Jeremie’s Needs went well. It gave students a chance to think about ways to make Jeremie and the Grand Anse region a better place to live. The produced more kinds of needs than I anticipated, including infrastructure, health care and on to improving the downtown square and cleaning up the beach. There was extended discussion about things that could be done now, including various kinds of volunteering. We challenged them to get involved in volunteer activities before they graduate.
Quick Items: Keys. They found this one to be very easy and solved it almost immediately. Probably has little value.
By this time they were tired and having trouble staying on task. I let them play games and sing and sent them home a little early.
