K-12 Professional Development

A strong commitment to professional development has always been at the heart of all LARC’s outreach activities. The professional development opportunities offered through the Latin American Resource Center are great ways for teachers to learn innovative strategies for introducing Latin America into the K-12 curriculum.

Each year the Resource Center hosts workshops designed around various Latin American themes. These professional development opportunities are designed to meet Louisiana and national content standards for the theme selected. The Resource Center’s staff work very hard to ensure quality programs that will ultimately benefit the K-12 classroom.

For all workshops offered, participants receive a Certificate of Participation stating the content covered during the workshop and time-on-task. This certificate can be used to fulfill Continuing Learning Units for the state of Louisiana in accordance with the High Qualified Teacher definition.

In addition to traditional workshops, we also offer Summer Study Abroad programs and various other opportunities that periodically arise.

If you have any suggestions as to how to make LARC Professional Development further achieve our goal of meeting state standards and providing quality programming, please contact us at crcrts@tulane.edu. LARC staff are always available to hear your comments.
