[We were reminded] that we are a people with a past and it is very important to acknowledge and familiarize ourselves with it. Since then I have been inspired to learn more about my ancestors and create stronger bonds with my family members who are living.
When you know where you come from, you show your pride to the world.
It was clearly evident that students and parents alike gleaned so much from your unique workshop that was both interactive and self-reflective. And I have to say that I was pleasantly caught off guard by the powerfully emotional effect that exploring your family history can have.
The workshop was awesome. The information was very helpful, you laid the foundation out well. I can move forward to building my house.
You truly inspired me to learn about my family's history. If we do not know our past we will be like a tree that has forgotten its roots. Thanks again.
Learning about my ancestors is the beginning for me.
I love how the [Ancestors] curriculum gives my students a sense of purpose and the ability to make global connections to their learning.
I think it's more important to find out where we came from, so we can tell our future children about our ancestors. Our next generation will know where they've come from, and pass it on. This experience is necessary and I hope the next class will benefit from this as well.
