National Resource Center Summer Institutes and Summer Tours – Posted on Berkeley ORIAS

To do this, they provide curriculum materials, teacher education, travel opportunities for teachers, scholarly speakers, and more. Through these sites you can find a wide array of resources: lesson plans, culture boxes, and Skype-based classroom speakers, just to name a few.
