Amman, Jordan

I visited Amman in March of 2019 to run a two-day College Board AP Economics workshop for teachers from all over the Middle East. About half were Americans teaching abroad, and about half were from the countries where they taught. We had great conversations about culture and politics – and how to teach concepts like banking in countries and cultures where charging interest violates the law. Many of their students aspired to attend college in the U.S., but some were afraid because of rampant gun violence in America.
