+ kids

The kids in my Trinity Exam course chose the following topics for their oral exam in April: the solar system, Greek heritage, soccer hooligans, the connection between metal and classical music, the difference between the punk music movement in the U.S. and the U.K., the monestary in Taize, France (where visitors are invited to live in silence for one week), the role of The Sea in poetry and literature, The Lord of the Rings and Tolkein's symbolism, Alice Cooper, life in an Italian village and finally, the choral music experience. They were charming and smart, articulate and endearing - with just the right amount of justifiable cynisism while still remaining innocently hopeful. I LOVE MY STUDENTS.
