The number of English language students in American schools has dramatically increased in recent years, creating a greater awareness of cross-cultural issues and considerations in education. Globalization as well as an increase in international exchange student programs has proven that pre-service teachers can benefit from traveling abroad and working with students from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Advancing Teacher Education and Curriculum Development through Study Abroad Programs is an authoritative reference source for the latest scholarly research on the value of travel abroad programs for pre-service educators, addressing the benefits and opportunities available when teachers gain cultural awareness and a better global understanding. Highlighting theoretical foundations, curriculum innovations, and specific challenges to overcome in the implementation of such programs, this book is an essential reference source for school administrators, university professors, curriculum developers, and researchers in higher education.
