I could make a living off of something I love to do it would be a combination of two things. I would want to make a living from teaching a student leadership with a hint of world culture as a class. This course would be a combination of student leadership and culture appreciation. I would find away to use cultures from around the world to provide students with a different way of looking at the systems around them. My hope would be that not only will it encourage them to challenged those very systems, if necessary. But,to also realize what is good about the systems they live by and use it to the best of their advantage when or if they choose to challenge the systems around them. Looking at other cultures may also inspire students to think outside of the box. The goal of this course or program would be to bring students of different backgrounds and values to one table and have them work to fix what needs to be fixed. to make this a reality, I would need to research pedagogy. I would also need to ensure that my major is somewhere along the lines of social studies and world culture. After research, I would be able to come up with an exact structure and outline for the course to be engaging to youths. Then I would try to create an after school program to teach or pilot this course in.
