Program Description
Study classroom management for social and emotional learning in Barcelona, Spain, a city known for its vibrant art and food scenes, its Mediterranean seascape, and its unique Catalunyan culture and language. You will be engaging course material through online modules and working with international teachers in English speaking classrooms in our partner school in Barcelona, experiencing how to build communities of learners and to apply classroom management strategies.

Additionally, you will be experiencing the beauty and culture of Barcelona through guided tours of the city, a visit to Gaudi's famous cathedral, La Sagrada Familia, and by experiencing a Catalunyan cooking class. This winter session program also usually includes a visit to the breathtaking Montserrat monastery with its dramatic mountaintop views across northern Spain, and other excursions within the city to Casa Mila, the Picasso Museum, and other famous Barcelona sites. The program also includes a welcome and farewell dinner in a traditional Catalunyan restaurant.

Students reside in double or triple occupancy apartments with full kitchen facilities and wifi in a safe and friendly neighborhood with easy access to local shopping, cafes, and metro access to tourist sites.

If you are an Elementary Teacher Education major with the desire to learn about classroom management in a dynamic school and warm and friendly city, the Winter Session to Barcelona is for you.

The Program Fee includes lodging in double or triple occupancy apartments.

Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare.
