School-Based Language, Culture, & Pedagogy Immersion in Mexico City
This summer, seven teacher candidates and two faculty traveled to Mexico City as part of the SOE’s School-based Language, Culture, and Pedagogy Immersion program (See http://www.luc.edu/education/school-basedsummerimmersioninmexicocity/ for more information). Through a partnership with La Universidad de La Salle (ULSA), candidates lived with host families and worked with elementary school teachers at Colegio Simón Bolivar for a two week classroom immersion experience. Candidates also took part in cultural excursions to places such as the pyramids of Teotihuacan and Basílica de Guadalupe, as well as engaged in cultural exchanges with Mexican education students at the university.
