Classrooms Without Borders (CWB) is a premier provider of experiential professional development for teachers through study seminars that take place outside of the classroom. History, culture, politics and current events are experienced "live" through learning tours abroad.
The exposure to ancient and modern realities from a "first-person" perspective gives teachers a greater appreciation of their subject of study and specialty. CWB's unique travel experiences are enriched with rigourous content, scholarly readings, renowned speakers, exhibits, arts and direct applications to classroom instruction.
Educators return to the classroom highly motivated and energized, their intellectual and creative batteries recharged and strengthened.
Diverse local programming supports the travel study seminars by continuing to engage educators, while extending the CWB experience to students and the community.
"Administrators benefit from the experience by gaining a broader understanding of cultural differences among students and their families. They gain greater insight and support for the importance of including multi-cultural curriculum in their schools."
