A Primer for Accompanying Secondary Student Groups to France. [Revised].
Many of the factors that can help ensure a successful and positive learning experience for teachers, leaders, chaperons, and students who travel and/or study in France are addressed in this publication. Although it is geared toward France, many of the ideas, especially the section on pre-departure orientation, can be applied to any travel group. The primary objectives of the booklet are to help teachers develop confidence in taking students abroad, to promote the "know before you go" mentality, and to provide an information resource. Among the nearly 100 topics covered are the following: itinerary, airport check-in, menus, post office, insurance, immunizations, drugs, transportation, passports, money, parent role, returning home, group leaders, museums, shopping, and various aspects of visits to Paris.
