You shouldn't make us leave so early in the morning. By the time we get to our last tour of the day, we are struggling to stay awake and pay attention. Other than that... everything was good.

Derek said...

Maybe if we left later or a day earlier like on sunday we could have more free time and wouldn't have to get up at four in the morning.

adam said...

if we left later or another day like the others said.. but maybe less interviews and stops during the day because i noticed by 3:30 our group was starting to fall asleep. so maybe if tbeir was les info in one day i think we would be ok.

adam said...

later curfew later start on interviews. our group got up at 7 while the other were werent leaving until 9. all times should be the same

adam said...

i believe this was a good experience we got to see how other people lives their lives and what they thought about how war was going.

adam said...

being boston; seeing the poor people makes you think about how lucky you are to go to a school and to have a house and clothes and cars and all the other things we have. we take life for granted sometimes and when you see those people makes you think about how lucky we all are

Definitly not leaving that early again. And maybe getting three coach busses instead of two. Trying to stay still and comfortable even sleeping on those two public school busses was horrible. I second the later curfew aswell. So we can have a little more free time to hang out and do our own thing. Thats it.

Leaving early made the first day unproductive and hard to stay focused because we were all tired. I think we could leave later and be more beneficial.

I would like to leave later Monday morning, but also stay later Tuesday evening, making the Tuesday afternoon more productive. I would also like to have more quality time with my group in early November. This would enable us to come up with thorough essential questions and then time for me to use those in planning a meaningful trip.

Making us leave so early in the morning wasn't easy. It also didn't help many of us pay attention to what was going on throughout the day.

Maybe change the days to the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday before break so we can have more time in Boston and no come back to school with and overload of work to do. Also maybe the departure time could change.

Nicoya said...

Let's change the departure time to maybe six or seven. Five in the morning was reallt pushing it.

If we left the night before, it would have been much less stresful than waking up so early in the morning.

i think we should travel down on sunday night and stay at the hostal for that night because leaving that early killed us and we'd be more efficient with a good night sleep. plus i think the later curfew would be better because my group had very little time to hang out with the other groups because we had so many things to get done.

We should be involved in more interesting activitiies. my group was left sitting around a mall for 2 hours with nothing to do. plus not all the the interviews related to eachothers topics so we had a hard time gathering infomation from our interviews.

The only thing you could change is leaving so early.

Bruce C. said...

I think the school should give us one all free day for us in Boston

Some how make the first day shorter?? somehow if possible. it made the 2nd day seem long since the first day tired us out (if that makes since)

I think the departure time of the trip should change but other than that it was a pretty good trip

More days to stay in Boston, it was too short.

Try to get COACH BUSES, at least for the early-morning departure. Being crammed into the shool buses was an experience I could have done without.

I would consider moving the student research period back to boston, it would add to the experience, be more convenient, and would help us keep more focused.

make it longer

Alex S. said...

Not to jump on the bandwagon but not so bloody early. God, that killed me. Also, less stringent blogging requirements.

get a new bus because the one i rode on sucked, dont make kids write a paper it dose nothing to help them, and the whole website thing is anoying to

kirsten nilsson said...

perhaps if there were more similarities in the ideas that the groups have. more essestial questions that relate so everyone has a chance to get an answer

leaving on sunday, not the monday...cause i had a rough two days being very sleepy. It was all worth it though.

nicole said...

The early morning was a little rough but other than that I had an awesome time and don't really know of anything we could change.

Mike Lyon said...

I think that you could consider changing things that we do at night, considering that alot of things go on in boston that we cannot experience during the day

kyle said...

have more things to do at night time and change the time of leaving in the morning and maybe spend one more day down there

Sayde said...

Mayeb there could be an alternative to leaving so early in the morning, because it made us really tired the whole first day.

JD W said...

We shouldnt leave so early and we should have a better hotel

Next year they should stay a second night so nobody is exhausted from getting up so early.

Anonymous said...

you should offer more trips during the free time because alot of kids were just sitting around when they were done everything. you can only go around the block so many times.

We should have left on Sunday to spend more time in Boston.

Marc H said...

Leaving early in the morning was ok i guess. but i didnt see the point. when we got there we were stuck wondering around because we had 3 hours til our fisrt thing opened.

Ali said...

Leaving so early in the morning should probably change. several members of my group (myself included) nearly fell asleep during our last meeting the first day.

Maybe leaving a day earlier like they used to a few years ago would be better
