EDUC 274 Q - Special Topics in Education: Culture and Education in Ecuador (3 credits)

Participants take an international education and culture course that includes a service-learning component. This program provides a unique opportunity for students to apply book knowledge, theory, and personal experiences with students and school types in a different cultural setting. In Ecuador, participants observe children in an international K-12 multi-lingual, English instruction school for eight days. Students work with the students and examine aspects of culture, teaching methods, and developmental theory that relate to education in both the United States and Ecuador. Weekday mornings are spent in the schools, with afternoons used to tour local heritage sites and landmarks. Other days offer the opportunity to visit inner-city public schools and work with the children on site. Students meet for class for on the CCU campus for one week prior to the trip, and for one week after the trip. M.
