    Teaching Philosophy!

    May 17, 2015

        I’ve had the pleasure of taking Philosophy in Education this term. This class gets to go to a local first grade classroom and engage the kids in philosophical discussions after reading children's books. My book which I chose at the beginning of the class ended up being used in a lesson plan in the classroom this week. The whole experience was a total blast! I think we all had fun, college students and first graders alike!

    May 17, 2015

         I’ve steadily become more and more involved with a group called J Street U on campus. This group advocates for a two state solution between Israel and Palestine, aiming to bring peace within the region. I sympathize strongly with their current goal to end the occupation.

    Inside and outside the classroom, civic engagement is a powerful way for students to connect their personal and academic passions to real-world issues in their community.

    Blogging About My Carleton Experience

    April 5, 2015

    Blogging can be rather tricky. I've found that my experiences at Carleton have become more and more personal making it a little more difficult to find something 'bloggable' to say every week.

    Finishing Last Term

    April 5, 2015

    I'm pretty behind, so I'll start by recapping the end of last term. I wrote a really interesting paper, and it took up the majority of my time here. It was difficult, but it was also a substantial learning experience.
