January 12, 1999 Update

Each of us on the Team has a very different background and we've done different things to get to this point. Share with us some of what it's like to prepare for two years around the world!

The team generated the following reports: Try the following activities:
Abeja - Busy as a bee!

Abeja writes about what it means to travel and move around in life, as well as what she thinks of the Team.

The primary purpose here is to orient students to what the World Trek is about and to get them to identify with the Team Members. This will make their experience all the more exciting and relevant. So the most important activity at this point would be to have students either write brief essays, or share with the class, who they like the most, or who they think they are most alike. A second, follow-up topic, would be whether the students themselves would like to do a World Trek.
Jamila - Ready for the Road!

Jamila writes a little about San Francisco and shares her hopes for what The Odyssey can do in the world.
