ELED 181 I OR 281 I: Italy, Greece and Turkey provide authentic settings and spectacular surrounding for studying the arts with a view to designing instructional strategies and units that integrate art and architecture from seats of both Western and Eastern civilization. This travel facilitates understanding of culture as revealed through art. Students develop new multicultural approaches to teaching with a view to how environment and culture influence curriculum development. Students create artworks in diverse media.

There will be one class session at Hofstra prior to leaving on the cruise and another upon return to the United States.
