Educational Example

Mineola High School welcomed approximately six English teachers from HF-Centret Efterslaegten, an upper secondary institution in Copenhagen, which educates 1,500 students between the ages of 17 and 70. The visit served to provide professional development for the Danish educators who were looking to enhance their teaching of American history, culture and literature with first-hand experiences. During the trip, the Danish educators visited many classrooms and then participated in a professional development workshop with Mineola staff. The visit also allowed the visitors to practice their English-speaking skills and witness American life and culture within the school community.
