Since day one CSI has exceeded my expectations professionally and personnally. The organization of the event has been outstanding and, what is most important, the resources and experiences I am collecting will definitely impact my students.
One of the most interesting teaching moments today in the seminar was the issue about how history is told from the perspective of each country or culture involved. I think that teachers must teach facts and allow students to reach their own conclusions. The big dilemma is when teachers have to teach what the government tell them to teach with a curriculum most of the times bisased towards the its own country. Our compromise with students is to teach them how to think and give them the tools to reach their own conclusions.
