After class today, the students gave fabulous presentations on various cultural and social components of Irish and American systems. Topics ranging from abortion rights to prison systems were presented, as students created infomative and engaging posters for their work.
Once lunch was over, we headed to the Irish Emigration Museum, which was highly interactive and incredibly informative. Students explored the museum and got stamps on their "passports" as they went through each room. We learned the signficance of Irish emigration and its deeply profound effects on cultures around the world. Fun fact: Both Rihanna and Barack Obama have Irish ancestry!
