Central America, People, and the Environment Educator Institute


K-12 Teacher Institute in Panama · June 18-28, 2022

Central America: People and the Environment

When: June 18-28, 2022

Where: Panama City, Panama

During June 18-28, 2022 Tulane, Vanderbilt, and UGA carried out the final installment of our “Central America: People and the Environment” professional development summer series for educators! Teachers heard from local experts to deepen their understanding of the historic connections between the US and Central America through the Panama Canal, as well as local histories, culture, and the ecological systems on which diverse Panamanian communities depend. Participants also worked with Tulane University curriculum specialist Brooke Grant to develop materials and strategies for classroom incorporation of content.  Stay tuned, these resources will be posted soon on the LACSI website!

This final K-12 Teacher Institute was sponsored by Vanderbilt University's Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies, Tulane University's Stone Center for Latin American Studies, and the University of Georgia's Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute, with support from Title VI funding through the US Department of Education.
