Yes to Intercultural, Transformational Education!

by Becky Hunsberger, Teacher Ed Services
Starting this July, Teacher Education Services will be rolling out the intercultural track of the K-12 School Leadership Program. While initially designed with school leaders in mind, the three modules of this track can be easily adapted for those in any position of intercultural leadership—including language camps, administrative roles, etc. Cost for TeachBeyond members is limited to the cost of the textbook (about $15 US). Contact school.services@teachbeyond.org if you are not a TeachBeyond member.

Here’s a short summary of the three modules that make up this track:
