Independent Contract students - I suggest you to use this Self-assessment before and after your experience in Peru
What students say (Click here to see recent/old pictures) What they did last year What you could do this year
Spirituality program will also
be organized completeley
students' individual needs and will have this overseas study component
in Peru as an opportunity to take under a ILC in the winter quarter.
Participating in this immersion
program is more than just signing a contract because besides
studying what you are interested in, you become a member of a
learning community. The travel preparation can be part of your academic
work in the Fall. In Peru there will be
group activities, most activities will follow students own interests
(based on students proposals made during the
preparation period and which will in fact be their individual
contracts!). Participants who already have a project, know the Spanish
and have traveling experience can start this program in any
quarter. The program in Peru will happen in Guadalupe and Cajamarca
(Northern Peru) and follow these guidelines.
theory to practice
-It is an opportunity to experience community life in a real functioning community.
-It is an opportunity to live within populations affected by political decisions made in advanced countries, to talk, think, and learn about it.
-If your intention is to learn the language and culture of minority populations in Latin America, this could be a great introduction to your future plans.
-It is your chance to connect all you have learned theoretically about international politics/economics or multicultural issues with real life.
Evergreen students learn to be responsible for their own education and are ready to study under the Independent Learning Contract model. Each participant either design a contract according to each student's specific needs and interests or just follow the basic immersion program or do both. We use these 4 questions to guide our project. The extent and depth of the curriculum and most of the instruction is driven by the student self motivation and the assessment is an embedded part of everyday activities. Participants will base their educational experience on Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed and William Glasser's Choice Theory and Ciro Alegria's Broad and Alien is the World.
Participants then have the
-Real use of Spanish as your second language. Your classroom is the whole community.
-Experience life with a low middle class family. You contribute for your room and board and live at home as any other family member. There are other possible arrangements according to circumstances and needs.
-Learn Spanish using a constructivist approach, some % self instruction and most % student-centered active learning and community time which makes it an especial immersion process.
-If your knowledge of Spanish is limited and you are willing to teach English teaming with local teachers, you wil be offered this opportunity. Other volunteer community work involve teaching your hobby or anything you feel eager to share with the local community, activities at the hospital and local institutions (youth organizations, sports entities, local government projects, etc.). Participants have control in the schedule and itinerary.
-Choice Theory, Socratic dialogue and pedagogy of the oppressed at the praxis level.
