“Inspired Choices” by Andrea Zavadszky about Humanities I in Action (South China Morning Post, August 4, 2014)

Screen Shot 2014-08-04 at 11.19.25 AMFollowing our TEDx talk in May a reporter from the South China Morning Post scheduled an interview with Mike and myself for an article, and now it has just been published. The article represents the course well. We are especially pleased that our two award winners from last year, Helena and Yash, spoke so articulately about their experience in Humanities I in Action last year. I’d also like to thank Andrea for taking such a personal and sustained interest in the topic.

The picture is from an orphanage trip from November, 2012, the preceding year’s class.

This is a great encouragement as we begin again next week taking freshmen through the Humanities I in Action journey!

About martinschmidtinasia

I have served as a humanities teacher at Hong Kong International School since 1990, teaching history, English, and religion courses. Since the mid-1990's I have also come to assume responsibility for many of the school's service learning initiatives. My position also included human care ministry with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in Hong Kong, southern China, and others parts of Asia from 1999-2014. Bringing my affluent students into contact with people served by the LCMS in Asia has proved to be beneficial to students and our community partners alike. Through these experience I have become committed to social conscience education, which gives students the opportunity to find their place in society in the context of challenging global realities.
