My experience in Washington DC is awesome so far. On the first night, we went out and viewed various monuments. It was great. The best part of all is I rode the Metro! I am 29 years old and this was the very first time I had such an experience. It was amazing to me to see so many people back and forth and in and out. People were running trying not to miss their rides. I must admit, the subway looks nothing like I had imagined. It was fairly clean. On the first night, we went on a tour of the city. It is beautiful here. On the tour we got the opportunity to witness the president returning home. It was very exciting to me. I only wished to get off the bus more and spend more time looking at the monuments.
Day one at the museum was good; busy but good. We had the opportunity to view various pieces of great art work. It was amazing to see so much creativity of all sorts in one place. I only wished we had more time to spend looking at the art on our own. I know it will come tomorrow. We listened to several great presenters. Each of them had very informative information to share with us. I now have a clear using of primary and secondary sources. Brian did a good job showing us how to intergrate art into our lesson plans. I was able to brainstorm ideas as to how to present
art to my students in a fun and exciting way.
