2017 K-12 Summer Teacher Workshop

Somos Nós: Brazil on the Move

Infusing Brazil into the K-12 Classroom
June 20-23, 2017
Athens, Georgia

Join us for a four-day summer workshop focused on integrating the language and culture of Brazil into the K-12 classroom! Brazil, Latin America’s largest country, has gone through tremendous change in the last decade. From hosting two mega-events, the World Cup (2014) and the Summer Olympics (2016), to recently impeaching their president, Dilma Rousseff, Brazil serves as an interesting case study for developing countries that can add to your students’ understanding about the world.

Institute participants will explore the history and culture of Brazil, improve their communication skills through Portuguese language classes, and collaborate to design innovative curriculum and materials to use in the classroom. Faculty and staff from three top-tier universities will give lectures and hands-on workshops

This summer institute is sponsored by the University of Georgia, Tulane University, and Vanderbilt University through a Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center grant.
