Service Learning: Week #5
There were under ten students in class today because the others were on a field trip. However, even though there were less of them, the noise level was what would be expected from a group of energy-packed high schoolers on a Friday afternoon! A girl was wearing a bookcover on her head; I thought it was a durag. Today I also pondered the topic of perceptions: I was walking down the hallway to get a drink of water, when two guys approached me. One asked, "Hey, do you have a lighter?" I replied that I did not. Then the other said, "Man, does she LOOK like she has a lighter?" What does that supposed to mean? I wonder what I did with my body language/physical perceptions to tip him off that I don't smoke.
Within the group of students today, one of them wanted to be a video game designer, another a history teacher, yet another a cosmotologist, and a nurse.
