Abstract:

This resource guide was developed for teachers and administrators interested in participating in intercultural and international exchange programs or starting an exchange program. An analysis of an exchange program's critical elements discusses exchange activities; orientation sessions; duration of exchange; criteria for participation; travel, lodging, and meals; and securing financial support. Two educator exchange programs sponsored by the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory are described: New Mexico's Teacher-Ambassador Exchange Program between schools in New Mexico and in Guadalajara and Monterrey, Mexico; and an exchange between Richardson (Texas) and Ciudad Victoria (Tamaulipas, Mexico). After these two exchanges, U.S. and Mexican participants met in focus groups to reflect on their experiences. Comments focus on educators' increased awareness of the host culture, opportunities to practice the host language in homes and communities, and increased awareness of similarities and differences between the two countries' educational systems (school schedules and activities, curriculum, instructional practices, instructional materials, use of technology, language instruction, roles of parents and teachers, and teacher certification and development). Profiles of seven active exchanges between U.S. educators and those in Mexico or Spain include contact information, program characteristics, goals, activities, and host site information. Mexican institutes and cultural centers in the United States are listed, as are education offices of the Spanish Embassy. Appendices discuss data collection and present focus group questions in English and Spanish. (Sv).
