As I looked through my mail over the weekend, I noticed the local community college sent a flyer with their Adult Education Summer class list and saw some fun courses like Hula Hoop Fun, Fly Tying, Golf, Reiki, Mah Jongg, Knitting & Quilting, Dog Obedience, Sign Language, Tai Chi, and Dance Party Exercise...and I couldn't help but think hmmm those are some interesting little classes now aren't they? So I said to myself - if I could teach an Adult Education class - or better yet, if I could make some suggestions on Adult Education courses that should be offered in this crazy world, what would they be? So here's a fun look at some basic skill courses maybe some people should be required to take or get continuing education credits for. And I'm curious - what class would you like to see offered in the Ideal World College? Lol...enjoy...
