Laurel Stolte

Dr. Stolte will travel to Panama with a team from Digital Portobelo, a project documenting the rich culture and history of the vibrant Afro-Latin community. While there, Dr. Stolte will develop bilingual, standards-aligned curriculum for two-way language immersion students. The units will involve students at three different grade levels in an exploration of ways that people preserve their cultural backgrounds and resist injustice while engaging globally. The lessons will be shared with educators in the United States and Panama through workshops and the Digital Portobelo website.
