WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY TO BE A SEMINAR LEADER?
In college, you have worked so hard to understand of a tremendous variety of subjects. You have learned from the greatest minds in each field. Now, you have a chance to integrate what you have learned and place your own stamp on it. You can pick any topic that interests you and draw on your experiences from inside and outside the classroom to develop your own original curriculum. Your students will be talented students who have not been exposed to a liberal arts education, but are eager to learn and engage. By teaching them, you will gain a deeper appreciation of what you have learned, and form wonderful bonds with your enthusiastic pupils!
Serving as a Seminar Leader goes above and beyond the traditional summer experience. You will have the chance to expand your cross-cultural understanding on a personal level as you teach, engage, and learn from Chinese high school students, your fellow Seminar Leaders, and the surrounding community. You will advance your presentation, communication, and public speaking skills, taking on a leadership role as you design and implement curricula, and mentor students in a new and exciting environment. And most importantly, you will challenge yourself, your students, and your assumptions of the world. A week of discovery is at your fingertips. Apply now and see where it will take you.
