Teaching Cuban Culture and Society: A Summer K-12 Teacher Institute in Cuba
Havana, Cuba |  June 21 - July 5, 2014

***See below for instructions.***

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies is offering a unique summer study abroad program for K-12 teachers in Havana, Cuba in 2014. This two-week program provides the unique opportunity to work on developing lesson plans, earn academic credit while exploring the sights and sounds of a nation and people that remain obscured behind political rhetoric and misinformation. Recent economic changes on the island have provoked a series of social and cultural transformations that have left Cubans and the entire world wondering what could be next for the island and the Revolution. Don’t miss the chance to witness some of these challenges and triumphs firsthand and get the opportunity to bring your experience back to your students in the classroom.

Those interested in applying must be a K-12 educator or librarian. There is no Spanish language requirement for this program. *Please note*: This program is only open to K-12 educators who are currently teaching, are pre-service teachers or are serving in a school or public library.

Complete applications (application form, copy of a sample lesson plan, copy of front page of passport, and two letters of recommendation) and a $150 non-refundable deposit are due by *5:00 p.m. on March 28, 2014*.
