Rotation Courses

The Rotation Courses are lessons or activities developed by the cohort of fellows based on their diverse interests and areas of expertise. Students will rotate through the schedule, gaining the opportunity to work with a variety of ideas, student groups, teaching styles and Western Fellows over the course of the program.

The rotation courses are taught in the mornings, creating a fresh start to each day before longer-term project work in the afternoons.

Sample Rotation Courses

Past rotation courses have followed some of the themes below. The mix this summer promises to be inspiring and diverse!

  • Poetry workshop;
  • Cultural role playing;
  • Ethics and storytelling;
  • Morality and the United Nations;
  • American/British Idioms;
  • The roots of Ancient English;
  • Improvisational drama;
  • Fable writing;
  • Collaborative dance;
  • Ecology of Western China.
  • In addition to providing exposure, these daily courses will help students develop skills in relevant areas of scholarship. Language Arts, Drama, and Debate form three such emphases.
