Twenty-five social studies, English, and other humanities educators who teach in grades 6-12 from across the U.S. will be selected as participants in a six-week institute to be held in South Africa from June 23-August 4, 2009. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and sponsored by the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Arkansas--Monticello, the institute will feature three weeks of lectures on aspects of South African history and culture at the University of the Western Cape, Cape Town, followed by three weeks of field study throughout South Africa. The participants will use the knowledge gained and the artifacts they collect to develop curriculum materials for their classrooms. The stipend of $4,400 will cover most of the expenses.
