The K-12 Global Fellowship Program will engage K-12 teachers in a series of four guided readings, lectures, and group discussions over the course of the 2018-19 academic year. K-12 teachers will explore minority issues in East Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East under the guidance of a regional expert. Teachers may opt to attend individual sessions, or the whole series. Each participant will receive a contact hour certificate for each session that they attend. Readings will be sent to registered participants two weeks prior to each discussion date below.
