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.

Eligibility: This opportunity is available to High School Students and Teachers (Prior knowledge of Chinese history or language is not required).
Trip dates: September 18 - 27, 2014
Application Deadline: April 7, 2014
Costs: 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.
