The focus of this program is on building genuine relationships between the international visitor and the students and teachers with whom they come in contact. To achieve this, a. Student ambassadors who are new to the program will make a “pre-visit” to at least one of the classrooms to which they have been assigned for the purpose of observing an American school and classroom setting. b. Ambassadors meet with only one class group at a time. c. Participating teachers must be present at all times during the ambassador’s visits. Ambassadors will not make visits on days when a substitute is present. d. Each visit to a primary grade classroom should be no more than 40 minutes; upper elementary grades and secondary classrooms should be not more than 1 hour in length. Do you agree to these terms?
In order to participate in the Intercultural Ambassador Program, participating teachers must attend both the Teacher Orientation Meeting (1/31/19, 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. at SDSU) and the Joint Planning Workshop (2/7/19, 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. at SDSU). Do you agree to attend these meetings?
Participating teachers will contact their ambassador before the first classroom visit and then after each classroom visit for additional planning, fine tuning, and debriefing. These contacts may be made in person, by e-mail, or by telephone. Do you agree to this term?
Participating teachers will complete an evaluation form related to the ambassador’s visits and submit online no later than May 1, 2019. Do you agree to this term?
Participating teachers are expected to inform their site administrators about this program, the assigned ambassador, and classroom activities. Do you agree to this term?
Do you have any questions that we can answer at this time?
