Center Moriches High School students taking IB Social and Cultural Anthropology connected with students from the Westminster Academy in London. Like Center Moriches High School, the Westminster Academy is an IB World School. Students were able to discuss their class content with students from across the globe via Zoom.
Ahead of the international call, students put together a joint presentation including introductions, shared content and linked work. Several students presented on contemporary issues, which is one of the focuses of the course. They also had a free exchange, where students asked questions about cultural norms, healthcare systems in each country and what they would look forward to about visiting the U.S. or London.
Despite being thousands of miles away, students realized they have more in common than they thought. The opportunity aligned with the course itself, which allows students to explore and understand humankind in all its diversity.
