Alternative Education students edit Philippine reflection essays

Alternative Education students edited the reflection essays from the Access scholars of Dapitan City, Philippines as their editing and revising activity last week. The students specifically looked for corrections in grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling. The essays, assigned as one of the Access scholars’ final activities for their first semester, were reflections of the scholars relative to their participation in the US Embassy-sponsored Access Program. Significant points Access scholars discussed were about their understanding of American culture, improvement of their writing skills, and their collaborative writing activities with US students. Majority of the scholars specifically mentioned that their collaboration with US students raised their motivation to attend their Access classes each week.
