School-based Summer Immersion in Mexico City
Language, Culture, and Pedagogy
Summer 2015 Program Dates: May 10 - 24, 2015
This unique experience offers cultural, linguistic, and pedagogical immersion in an authentic school setting in order to prepare teachers who will use Spanish as a medium of instruction. Participants will spend two weeks in Mexico City living in a homestay and pairing with elementary school teachers for Spanish-language pedagogical experiences. From 9 a.m.–2 p.m. daily, students will observe, co-teach, and work with students at Colegio Símon Bolívar, a private Catholic K–8 school. This immersion in a classroom in Mexico will make participants stand out when applying for teaching positions upon graduation.
