Classrooms Without Borders (CWB) provides world-class professional development for teachers through study seminars that take place outside of their professional environments. 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.They return to the classroom highly motivated and energized, their intellectual and creative batteries recharged and strengthened.
CWB employs the very best scholars and educators to steer and accompany the teachers throughout the program.

"Poland Personally: A Study Seminar to Poland was extremely powerful and in many ways transformational. It turned out to be one of the most moving trips of my life. I knew that visiting the sites in Poland with a Holocaust survivor, Howard Chandler, would be very difficult emotionally, but its impact was even stronger than I had foreseen."
