You're Doing "What" This Summer? Making the Most of International Professional Development
Patterson, Timothy
Social Studies, v105 n6 p274-277 2014
The content of social studies curricula make studying abroad during the summer months a win-win for social studies teachers. During these experiences, teachers have the opportunity to develop their knowledge of global history and other cultures and to see a bit of the world. That said, the most dangerous assumption one can make is that simply going abroad will automatically lead to the ambitious expectations often associated with such experiences. Using data drawn from the experiences of four social studies teachers who engaged in international professional development and observations of their learning abroad, this article provides strategies for making the most of what may be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
