Travel Journal

Type of strategy: Writing and/or Reflection

Learning styles: IS: Introversion and Sensing

The travel journal challenges students to reflect on a trip from the perspective of it being a completely new experience.

Directions: 

Assign students to take a trip - even as simple as a trip to the grocery store - and blog, photo blog or video blog describing their trip.  They are assigned to describe it as if this is the first time they have ever been to this place.  What do they notice? What is the culture of the place they visited?  What were the social rules?
