This six-week-long graduate level course is targeted primarily to in-service teachers in US schools. Its main purpose is to give P-12 teachers opportunities to develop new knowledge and understanding of Latin America in the context of migration, and of the historical, sociocultural, and economic forces that cause Latin Americans to leave home for the United States. Six specialists from several disciplines will discuss these topics from different perspectives.
Students will develop strategies to enhance the educational experience of their students by incorporating content and new insights on Latin America into their teaching.
