Student creates Web guide for interns teaching in Bhutan
Students heading to Bhutan through the Wheaton/Royal Thimphu College Partnership Program can receive some extra help if they choose to teach at a local grammar school for their “Practicum in Bhutan” course, thanks to a fellow student.
Amelia Jackson ’16 has created a new website that helps college students get accustomed to leading classes at Jigme Losel Primary School, a popular placement option for participants in the Wheaton in Bhutan program. Each semester, the college sends a faculty member and eight to 12 students from Wheaton and other colleges to study at Royal Thimphu College in Bhutan.
Jackson’s website offers tips that teachers can use right from the beginning.
