Description: Mexicans are the fastest growing group of immigrants in NYC. Become more informed about issues of diversity through a comparative US-Mexico lens. You will visit elementary and secondary schools and speak with educators, students, and families. You will tour indigenous communities to learn about the local languages, customs and practices, artistic traditions and school-going experiences of students. You will explore Monte Alban ruins that are central to Oaxaca's history. These learning opportunities, along with the experience of living with a Mexican family, will prepare you to work with students in your (future) classroom!
