July 10 - 16, 2022
ACADEMIA LATINA is looking for classes that are hands-on, motivating and high interest. We are primarily interested in course proposals that challenge students, promote use of higher level thinking skills, and are designed to fit within our class format. Students enjoy courses that are not traditionally offered in school. We are interested in academic course offerings in the following areas: mathematics, the sciences, communication, drama, art, history, human services and technology. The purpose of these classes is to blend the Latino culture with as many aspects of these subjects as possible.
The academic classes for ACADEMIA LATINA 2020 will meet for five days. Teachers are paid $30 per instructional hour. Please give some thought to your course outline and plan hands-on and motivating activities. Please submit your proposal(s) promptly so we can complete the scheduling process early and you can put ACADEMIA LATINA on your calendar. We hope to have the schedule published so we can mail course descriptions and schedules to students in May.
Please submit your course proposal on line by visiting the link below. If you wish to submit more than one proposal, please create a separate submission for each class. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 541-552-6378. We look forward to your participation in the ongoing success of the ACADEMIA LATINA program!
