A padlock, though is seemingly interminable.   Two beings step out of a fairytale, one...

Students were tasked to write their own "I am" poems. Fast forward to this week in Thailand, where 9th-grader Russell was looking back at old work for material while writing his memoir.

This post is also by Yada P.   “Ow! Why in the world did I bring heels!” utters Alice, leaning against the wall as we climb up the stairs. Her hair is pinned up, her make-up impeccable. I look down at my own red, three-inch, suede ones. They stuck out from the black and white flats in the crowd. Carrying a briefcase and a backpack, everyone trudges to the different...

I must say, each time I plan an activity involving traditional dress I get a mixed bag of looks and reactions from my colleagues and students on whether donning cultural dress is acceptable or disrespectful.
