I have exciting news this week!! My students and I made a video highlighting happiness in Peru and submitted it to the Peace Corps Week video contest. Drumroll please… WE MADE THE FINALS!! We were selected as one of fourteen finalists worldwide and now there is a Facebook contest to see whose picture can get the most likes by Wednesday.
Please help us out by liking and sharing the photo found here: goo.gl/5k9yND
Back story, we are on summer break right now and I decided to do a month long English and World Culture class. Twelve high school juniors and seniors come three days a week to learn English and after finding out about the Peace Corps Week video contest they took it upon themselves to plan out a video titled, “Joy in Peru”.
As a class they decided which specific parts of Peruvian culture bring them joy and then divided into small groups and elaborated on each point. They are so proud of the final product, and can’t stop talking about how funny they sound on TV!
Thank you for all of your support! My students and I send lots of love from this small town in the Northern Andes of Peru.
