Join me as we travel
through foreign lands. We will begin our journey through the land of spices, India and end the first semester in the land
of smiles, Thailand, learning all about the history, the customs and people. We will also venture into the villages of Africa & learn why the beautiful beaches aren’t the only magical things about the Caribbean islands. After a little travel (OK, semester) break, we will pick up our journey beginning in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, at the historic monument, Christ the Redeemer, learning it’s history and significance and then after exploring more South American treasures, we venture through the American landscapes and Canadian Rockies, we complete our journey in Australia, learning it’s history from it’s first inhabitants, the Aboriginal Australians to being immersed into current Australian culture.
This course will be taught from anthropological
perspective, using “travel teaching”, to engage American/Western students to exposure and impart knowledge about traditions and ancient customs
and people all over the world. A little history, a little biological anthropology, a little
geography and a lot of learning cultural anthropology in a fun, interactive class! Semester 1 will focus on the largest continents Asia & Africa and then will include the Caribbean. Semester 2 will focus on S. America, Australia and N. America. Grab your passport and buckle up, this
journey is sure to be a good one!
