France March 25: Visiting Lycee Kastler

Kastler was pretty cool, for a school at least.  The school was really large for a public school.  It had its own little campus.  The day started in a philosophy class. I didn’t understand much, but from what I did get, the class was interesting.  Almost like TOK at GS, the class was highlighting and interpreting different ideas and scenarios.  Math class was about as basic as it could be, but a lot of students were at the board working out problems.  The most interesting class was history.  For a class I usually don’t particularly enjoy, I was really interested despite the language barrier! The teacher was great and engaging.  Overall, it was cool to see the other ways the French students learned and how the teachers taught.
