Afternoons will be immersed in special training experiences:
- Walking Tree Travel sponsored Global Leadership Training: This engaging curriculum is meant to spark discussion, frame the group’s experience, and prepare participants to travel ethically and effectively on our programs now and into the future. At its core, the first step toward global leadership is developing intercultural competence – “a set of cognitive skills that support effective and appropriate interaction in a variety of cultural contexts”. Our curriculum also encourages participants to take initiative as leaders in their local communities to make a difference on a global scale, helping them to understand the impact they can have when they combine cultural understanding with personal and social responsibility.
- Organic World Language Proficiency and Engagement Strategies Training: This training, designed for teachers of all subjects, is focused on maintaining high student engagement in class, as well as personalizing and differentiated curriculum. Through interactive activities, we will explore what proficiency-based instruction looks and feels like. Participants will experience strategies and techniques that will be applicable to all subjects. There will be time built in to reflect on and plan for their own subject area.
Price: $1490- Includes training, adventures, meals, and lodging. **travel not included**
