To promote cultural understanding, international students attending Bluffton University share about their country and culture through individual presentations or panel presentations. This opportunity is coordinated through Louise Matthews, the advisor for International Connection, and is limited to occasions when international students are available to participate.
Never Too Old for picture books
As teenagers and adults, we never really outgrow the messages shared in picture books. This session will highlight themes and picture books that can be incorporated into curriculum and lessons for students of all ages, not just for young children. Lessons from the text books can be enriched and presented from various perspectives using picture books from The Lion and Lamb Peace Arts Center about history, environment, cultures, science, viewing the world from a child's perspective, social interaction, family, peer pressure and more. This program can be focused toward teachers and adults who work with children and youth, as well as other adult audiences.
