Mr. Rodman goes to South Africa!

Mr. Rodman, economics teacher at John F. Kennedy High School in Silver Spring, Maryland, has been accepted as one of 24 teachers selected nationwide to accompany the Council for Economic Education and the U.S. Department of Education on a Study Tour to the Republic of South Africa!

I can’t believe it! I am so happy to be accepted for this honor, to represent my country, my state and my school in Johannesburg, South Africa. Wow!

What will we be doing there? We will be visiting economics classes of high school and university students to see how economics is taught in South Africa, where we might work more closely together, and where we can find commonalities to suggest additional teaching strategies and methods, and share ideas with teachers there.
