SPAN 117 - Community Field Work

This course aims to promote and enhance Hispanic culture in the Worcester community through the HCH program (Herencia y Cultura Hispánicas). It is a multigenerational collaborative learning space where participants grow and learn from each other culturally, linguistically, and personally through an exploration of Hispanic culture. The course is a bi-directional exchange between students at Clark University and Worcester Public Schools students between 8 and 10 years old, with an emphasis on Worcester Public Schools students as leaders in the cultural exchange process and undergraduates as leaders in the facilitation process.  Part of the grading components will be linked to the undergraduate’s performance during the sessions with the WSP students. The WSP students will attend two and a half hour sessions twice a month -after the school- here at Clark and that is why the only option for this course is to meet once a week in a 3 hours seminar from 2:50 to 5:50.
