Two in Thailand

After raising three children and watching them graduate from college, Bob and Carol decided to leave the educational field and pursue a dream that had been put on hold for 35 years (since graduationg from the University of Northern Iowa). "Two in Thailand" is the journal dedicated to that dream - to serve in the Peace Corps. This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed within do not necessarily represent the views of the Peace Corps or the United States Government.

A common practice in traditional Thai teaching is the teacher up front with students either listening or shouting in unison the words or facts being taught. Often, one student will stand and read while others simply idle the time away. These are pictures of her paired learning partners that engages all students.

These are students teaching students. A good student is paired up with a struggling student (peer teaching).
