The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) at The Ohio State University is excited to announce its fully-funded, four-week summer program for K-12 educators to experience the Andes!
CLAS received a grant from the Fulbright-Hays Groups Projects Abroad (GPA) Program in the U.S. Department of Education to fund a seminar for K-12 educators titled “Teaching the Andes: Redefining the Common Good and Reclaiming the Public Square“. This program will take twelve educators in various disciplines to Ecuador and Peru from June 16-July 16, 2017. The grant will cover the majority of costs for the program, and participants will only be required to pay for expenses related to a pre-departure orientation in Columbus, Ohio.
Participants will benefit from a wide variety of activities that explore the history, politics, language, and culture of the Andes while developing innovative approaches to teaching and studying the region, in addition to Quechua language instruction.
We ask that you please share widely this opportunity with anyone interested in attending this program. If you would like to learn more about “Teaching the Andes”, please visit our grant website.
