A rich and diverse range of experiences will be offered during the six-week study tour in Ghana (July 8-August 19, 2007) that will culminate in an in-depth view of its peoples and cultures. The Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad program offers a unique opportunity to develop resource materials for teaching and for curriculum development through instruction, research, field visits, and home-stays in Ghana. An orientation conference at Yale University (July 5-7, 2007) will be held. Upon returning from Ghana, a series of activities will be offered to complete curriculum modules (October 13 and December 8, 2007; February 9, March 8, and a Saturday in October 2008) to disseminate what we've learned, including presentation at professional workshops and conferences over the next several years.
Sponsored by the Council on African Studies, the MacMillan Center, and the U.S. Department of Education through a Fulbright-Hays grant (pending).
Tuition for the program is $1,000.
