In less than a month I will be traveling to Jordan to study Arabic this summer. Following this I will continue to study Arabic in the fall in Fes, Morocco!

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!

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.

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.

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.

This week there were several events outside of the classroom that gave me a greater appreciation for Arabic and the language's corresponding culture.
