Lab Teachers Also Benefit from "Going Global"
Since 2010, faculty members have had the opportunity to apply for a fellowship through The Edith and Herbert Lehman Foundation to support and extend their curriculum through travel. All applications for the Fellowship are carefully reviewed and a select number of teachers are chosen each year. Recipients share their travel experiences and photos at a full faculty meeting every December. Thanks to these generous fellowships, faculty have traveled to the Vesuvian International Institute in Italy, Iceland to study the “Land of Fire and Ice,” Prague for an intensive workshop on marionette making, Shakespeare’s England, and Greece to trace Odysseus’ route among others, gaining relevant experiences and knowledge that enrich what they teach their students in the classroom at Lab.
