SAS Teacher Selected for TOP Program in Germany
Miami, July 28, 2014 -
Where do the best lessons in life come from? From Experience!
Experience is what the Transatlantic Outreach Program (TOP) is all about. TOP seeks to find the best and most qualified K-12 social studies educators in the United States and Canada and give them the opportunity to experience Modern Germany in the most dramatic way possible: in person.
Of the many hundreds who applied in 2014, Michele Mar from School for Advanced Studies was one of 100 social studies educators from across the United States selected to travel to Germany between June 6 and June 21 on a two-week, all-expenses-paid study/travel seminar.
Highlights of the summer study/travel seminar include: Q&A sessions with executives of the Federal Foreign Office, German curriculum developers, authors, and German teachers; visits to German schools; a personal tour of the Reichstag; visits to various museums; and visits to examples of Modern German industry and culture.
