School-Based Summer Immersion in Mexico City
Language, Culture, and Pedagogy
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 9am – 2pm 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.
Summer 2013 Program Dates: Saturday, May 11th to Saturday, May 25th
