We are sitting together for the very first time. We read/viewed Paul Farmer's This I Believe statement. Teachers are handing out our first night's readings and suggesting that students follow our schedule/calendar on BlackBoard.
Students also received first written assignment today: writing a brief narrative about how they have helped a total stranger in an impoverished condition, poverty/illness on a non-personal level, and poverty/illness as something you will or won't try to change.
Science Labs this week are T-TH & Friday. Pre-lab reading for the week: "Emerging and Reemerging Infectious Diseases: A Global Problem".
We get to do an activity outside later this afternoon! This is way cooler than being in the library all day. We are all very excited.
