Study Abroad, South Africa
Dr. Lori Assaf has been teaching the Study Abroad Course to South Africa for the past four years. During Summer Session I, Dr. Assaf takes up to 12 students to Chintsa South Africa to work in local rural schools. We teach local students how to write personal narratives in English and isiXhosa and turn those pieces of writing into digital movies using PowerPoint. In addition to working in the schools for over 60 hours, we go on several hiking excursions, spend the night with Mama Tofu, and visit a local game park.
