Description

Travel journals are fascinating to look at, interesting to read, and give us insights into our own or other cultures. For example, travel journals can help us understand and explore information and research about a destination country's history, geography, language, politics, art, people, clothing, customs, food, or other aspects of life past or present. In this workshop, participants will view different types of travel journals and discuss the history of travel writing as a primary source of cross-cultural and interdisciplinary knowledge.

Participants will make simple book structures useful for classroom project-based learning that can contribute to knowledge of geography, social studies and history, world languages and cultures, reading comprehension and writing, art and visual literacy, and for studies of science or environmental issues.

We will also explore online resources and multicultural literature to extend teaching and learning through mixed media and interdisciplinary approaches.
