Study Abroad Information for Current Linfield Students
January Term Abroad
EDUC-398 Multicultural Experiences in Education: Culture and Education in Puerto Rico
Students will serve as instructional aides in various classrooms in Puerto Rico. The Linfield students will assist the classroom teacher by working with students on an individual and small group basis, and occasionally on a whole class basis. Linfield students may also assist in preparation of materials and other aspects of teaching. Students will be immersed in the culture of the surrounding community. Through readings, guest speakers, and personal experiences working directly with students and the community, Linfield students will learn about the culture and learning styles of students, and how best to meet their needs. While on location, seminars and discussion groups will meet regularly to discuss experiences and to share insights. Evening and weekend activities will include excursions to various locations to explore the culture, history, politics, economics, arts, traditions, and natural wonders of Puerto Rico.
