Think outside of Borders to Increase Learning within Your School
Allen, Melissa
Library Media Connection, v28 n3 p35 Nov-Dec 2009
As a school library media specialist in a public high school, the author seeks opportunities that will increase her knowledge base and skill level in order to positively influence the learning that takes place in her school. The author recently returned from such an opportunity when she participated in the Toyota International Teacher Program in Costa Rica. The two-week study tour focused on education in Costa Rica, history and culture, conservation, and environmental science. Toyota's mission with this program is to engage teachers in field research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment. The program allowed teachers to work with community leaders, scientists, and fellow educators in Costa Rica to utilize their knowledge and experience with promoting sustainability across the curriculum. In this article, the author shares her experiences as a Toyota International Teacher in Costa Rica.
