The American South: Geography and Culture

A four-week institute for twenty-five K-12 teachers on geographic approaches to "cultural diversity" in the American South.

A four-week summer institute for K-12 teachers that will provide fresh opportunities to study, to see first-hand, and to experience the increasingly complex and diverse American South. Participants will attend lectures, fieldtrips, and lab exercises, learn methodologies and classroom activities from master teachers, and participate in discussions. They will be required to write essays and will develop standards-based lesson plans that they will take back to their classrooms.
