Comparing Life In Italy to the US

Action Plan

I will interview teachers, people who interact with children and children, as I am able. I will also take photos of places and things that will help answer my students’ questions.

Pre-Departure Preparation

My teaching team strives to incorporate understanding and appreciation for others beliefs and cultures. I hope to be able to share with my students a better understanding of what a child's life might be like in Italy (favorite tv shows, folktales, what schools are like, how students might travel...). I plan to incorporate this information into units we already teach about how our community (local, national and global) is effected by and enriched thanks to our similarities and differences.

Preparation During Travel

I will have my current students help me come up with questions that they have about life in Italy.
