This trip to Ghana represents a rigorous, short-term professional development opportunity – a chance to grow your cultural proficiency around a major African civilization. Improving the cultural competency in a school community can be a catalyst to closing achievement, social capital, cultural capital, and human capital gaps, creating a more equitable learning environment and a more just society for all.
Participating BPS educators will conduct interviews, meet with opinion-leaders, and generally come to know Ghana in unexpected, inspiring ways. You’ll come to know Ghana’s history, and its contributions to the contemporary ‘global village’.
You’ll initiate partnerships with Ghanaian schools – and develop or add to curriculum around Ghana and the West African region. You’ll explore contemporary issues and their relevance to Ghana’s rich culture and history. The in-country component includes structured visits and active learning at schools and universities, plus a wide range of other supporting activities—from cultural and historical site visits and resource conservation workshops to peer shadowing sessions and lectures led by college professors and expert facilitators.
