While traveling in the Galapagos, World Literature teacher Irene Krugman asked her students to develop a creative writing essay utilizing elements of magical realism and influence from their time in the islands. Written below you can find Yuan Yuan's response. A barren path lay before me, as the fog hovered underneath the sliver of moon that could pass as a clipped toenail. The fog crawled towards me, daring me to...

Upon returning from the Amazon, global studies teacher Andrew McLean instructed his students to write creatively on their experience in Yasuni National Forest. This is a response from 10th grader Bailey D. I CAST MY EYES over the tumbling, brown river and up into the treetops; a mass of green that never ends. Wind pushes hair past my face in long streams, placing a brown veil across the world. The...

  IT ALL STARTED when I wanted to leave Germany for a year, to see how it is to be away from family and because I wanted to improve my English. I wasn't sure where I should go, perhaps to the USA or the UK. While looking for the place that was right for me, I happened to find the perfect school. It would go to three different countries a year. The...

  WHAT IS TECHNOLOGY? That’s a pretty hard question. Six months ago, I probably would have said that it was just an array of tools I used from time to time to finish special school work. Now that I’m in TGS, technology is life. It’s what’s going to help me get from A to B on homework. It’s my connection to the outside world. It’s my salvation when I don’t...

The bush fire burned a...

The post is second in a series about the trip to Kangaroo Island.   It was cloudy and windy during breakfast. But after an hour when we got out of the van in the north of the Kangaroo Island it was hot and sunny. We arrived at Rare Breeds Farm - first of its kind, there are unique domestic animals, which are threatened with extinction. It could seem weird that...

Click here for other points of view on the climb from TGS student bloggers. It's really quite something to see the entire world, or at least the harbor, unfurl before you. Being suddenly blinded by the sunlight as you emerge from the shielded network of ladders and wires. Having rushing, swirling water underneath you where "Sydney Bridge" gray steel before covered. Wind lapping at your hair; a silent threat. You...

A reflection on the Sydney Harbor Bridge climb from a student's perspective. Click here for other points of view on the climb from TGS student bloggers. 6 million hand driven rivets. That's all that hold together the Sydney Harbor Bridge. From 1928 to 1932, over 52,000 tons of steel were use to create the crown jewel of Sydney.

Last month, during our UK weXplore, I took fourteen students to get fitted for kilts at the Highland House of Fraser in Inverness, Scotland. 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.
