Study Tours to Latin America (Note: On Hold Due to COVID-19)
The Educational Outreach Program offers study tours for teachers that provide opportunities for meaningful and substantive hands-on learning about Latin America and the Caribbean. Participating teachers engage in pre-trip workshops to deepen their understanding of the country they will visit and examine their role as a U.S. teacher in a global context. During the study tour, teachers visit places of historical, cultural and political significance, discuss their experiences in the classroom with local teachers, and participate in a homestay. Following the trip, teachers create and disseminate new curriculum based on their research and exploration of a relevant topic.
Past study tours include:
