CULTURE CAMP - 6/26/06 

Cultural competency is at the core of a project aimed at helping teachers excel in high-needs schools. Trinity's social work and education departments recently offered a culture camp on campus to nine college and high school students interested in becoming educators.

The students practiced their newly-acquired skills and learned about prejudice, bullying, and sensitivity to other cultures. Activities included field trips to the Pilsen and Chinatown neighborhoods in Chicago, a scavenger hunt around the city, and other games that focused on teamwork.

The project is a partnership activity of the Associated Colleges of Illinois' Center for Success in High-Needs Schools, which is funded by the US Department of Education's Teacher Quality Enhancement Program.
