Annotation provided by Bobby Shaddox

Segal, J., & James, F. (2010). Teaching our students to be cultural anthropologists. Independent School, 69(4), 8-9.

Teachers from Brimmer and May School in Massachusetts reflect on their experience teaching in Chinese schools in the Weihei School District. James and Segal discuss the implications travel has for authenticating and refining a person’s understanding. Their schools implement an integrated curriculum called Middle School World Music, Arts and Culture which was inspired by Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project.
