Developing a Safe, Curriculum-Centered Europe Trip – Josh Simmons

Josh Simmons July 14, 2017

Presented at:
SCL Summer Conference 2017


As classical educators, we love our ideals and ideas, but there's something magical about seeing students interact with the "concrete" reality of places studied in literature and history. European school trips can incarnate the ideas presented in the classroom, and so serve as a  key part of any school's curriculum. Nothing makes the French Revolution more real to them than being in Versailles. But there are the obvious concerns about cost, logistics, and security. This seminar will help you develop a unique Europe trip, integrate it into your curriculum, prepare your students and chaperones, all while keeping safety a top priority.
