South Korean educators to visit Horace Mann Lab School

Teachers and staff from Northwest's Horace Mann Laboratory School will welcome representatives from a South Korean education corporation during the last week in July.

The school partnered in 2007 with Horace Mann Corp. of Seoul, which wants to establish an elementary school in South Korea that will offer instruction in English and other subjects using elements of the lab school's curriculum.

Though lab school teachers have been working closely with members of the corporation via e-mail and the Internet, this will be the first time the educators have had the opportunity to meet on the Northwest campus.

In addition to exchanging ideas with their American colleagues, corporation representatives will spend time observing in lab school classrooms. Horace Mann Laboratory School serves students from pre-school through sixth grade.

The partnership between the school, located in Brown Education Hall, and Horace Mann Corp. involves a number of University programs and multi-cultural opportunities, including the Missouri Academy of Science, Mathematics and Computing and English Language Learning (ELL) camps for South Korean teachers.

For more information, call Jennifer Hunter, coordinator of programming, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, at 660.562.1345 or email .
