Course Description

This course is a full immersion, practical experience where participants will have the opportunity to learn alongside a veteran classroom teacher, in a fully inclusive elementary school. Emersons Green Primary School in Bristol, England was built backwards design to include all children in the community, even those with the most complex needs. Participants in this course will develop a collaborative action project to be completed in the school during our trip. While the bulk of this experience will take place in the town of Emersons Green, there will be time for exploring the historic towns of Bristol as well as London.
