About “Telling the Story of Diversity”
Our goal is to experience and document diversity in another country, especially in the schools. We plan to digitally collect the stories of diverse children and teens to share with our rural American students. They will hear powerful narratives that will show how we are all different but equal, and then be encouraged to share their own stories. We will also learn about the curriculum taught in schools and the history that led to diversity in southern England.
About the Rural Trust Global Teacher Fellowship
The Rural Trust Global Teacher Fellowship supports unique personal and professional development experiences for rural teachers. Fellows design their own international study and travel experience with anticipated benefits for their school and community. A post-fellowship institute helps fellows design place-based learning experiences for their students based on the travel experience and aligned with selected standards. Visit www.ruraledu.org.
