Topes de Collante: Scenery with newly-built buildings, 1970

From left: Paul Miller, Jamie Lasalle, and the front half of Will Soper. "Brigadistas went into classrooms in small groups to observe Cuban teaching methods. My group had trouble understanding wht was happening at first. Grade school students were clustered as several small tables, talking together, and every now and then opne of them would jump up and add more figures on a large blackboard. We found out that the students were working on math collectively, discussing the problem together and then adding their conclusion to those of the other groups to complete the assignment. Developing collectivity was a preoccupation wherever we went in Cuba, and in that environment we learned to live and work more cooperatively with each other. This experience was one of the greatest benefits I received from the Cubans."
