PRESENTING AN OPPORTUNITY FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT/TEACHER PAIRS TO STUDY HISTORY, LEADERSHIP AND LEGACY IN MODERN CHINA
Concordia International School Shanghai offers a unique educational
opportunity. Two high school teacher/student pairs will be selected to
take part in a travel-study program examining key events of 19th and
20th century China. The travel-study program visits Shanghai, Nanjing,
and Changsha to examine leadership in many forms, including the Taiping
Rebellion, Sun Yat-sen's revolution, the development of the Chinese
Communist Party, the role of Shanghai in China's re-emergence, and much
more. Participants will meet with local students to discuss history,
culture, and current events.
The focus of the trip aligns with the National History Day's 2014-2015
theme "Leadership and Legacy in History," providing students a unique
opportunity to create an NHD project. Additionally, university credit is
available through the University of Wisconsin system.
This opportunity is available to High
School Students and Teachers (Prior knowledge of Chinese history or
language is not required).
September 18 - 27, 2014
April 7, 2014
Concordia International School Shanghai will pay
for all trip-related expenses within China; participants selected to
take part are responsible for travel arrangements and costs to get to
and from Shanghai.
