The School at Church Farm in Exton, Pennsylvania follows one of its teachers through a week of arts exploration in Havana, Cuba. Students have prepared artwork to send to Havana, and now get a chance to follow their teacher via pictures, journal entries and video. Many questions will be asked and answered! Go here to submit:
1. ¿Cómo pasan los estudiantes su tiempo libre? (What do the students/ children do in their free time?)
I am not sure what they do, but they have a longer school day, and from what I have seen, they walk around with friends, play baseball and soccer in the streets, buy sugar snacks on the street, and do NOT carry portable gaming devices like a DS everywhere they go!
2. ¿Qué estudian? ¿Qué tipo de asignaturas tienen en las escuelas? (What are the subjects that the students do in school?
Same subjects as we study, there was not a lot missing from the curriculum at any grade level. When they reach 10th grade, they are usually in a track towards Arts, Sciences, Writing, or some vocation.
3. ¿Cómo son las clases y las escuelas? What are the classes/schools like?
This is a VERY long answer I will explain more later…
