From May 5 to May 30, Cathy Reischl, faculty leader of the undergraduate and master’s programs in elementary teacher education and coordinator of the Elementary Master of Arts with Certification (ELMAC) program, and Kathryn Young, coordinator of the undergraduate program in secondary teacher education, are leading a group of fifteen undergraduate students to Aotearoa/New Zealand for a project themed, "Exploring Language, Culture, and Schooling in Maori and Pakeha Education." Students in this project are developing a comparative perspective on the role of language and culture in schooling. They are learning actively through internships in schools, home stays, dialogue with university students and faculty, and cultural journeys to geological and historical sites. Seven of the fifteen students are education majors (six from U-M School of Education and one from UM-Flint).

You can follow the students on this exciting adventure through their group blog. You can also read Kathryn Young’s blog.
