ABC 俱乐部与中国学生欢聚一堂

 

7月24日,ABC俱乐部的学生们为12个从中国来美学习的初中生办了一次别开生面的讨论会 (http://youtu.be/XCDuNOWVlQE) 。来自大洋两岸,同样长着黄皮肤黑眼睛的20多个青少年,在八年级小主持人Megan的引导下,从握手介绍,主题讨论,到即兴短剧 (http://youtu.be/NnkHNRoQXnE http://youtu.be/Wbt4cNYRFGM, http://youtu.be/Wbt4cNYRFGM), 才艺表演,变小魔术等等,不但有各方面交流比较,还有欢乐的笑声。当大家在钢琴伴奏下演唱“童话”这首著名歌曲时,真情流露 (http://youtu.be/Y-eWHVfsnMg);大人孩子们猜测小魔术又是那么聚精会神 (http://youtu.be/a8xAxB4bZa4)。


主题讨论的具体内容见下面总结。ABC (Achieving Better Communication)  俱乐部几年来定期办讨论会,涉猎各种主题,诸如公正,平权法案,亚裔偏见,压力,passion and career, leisure, 等等。
