Teachers agree that a meaningful hands-on experience is more valuable than any lecture, but these same educators cannot afford these experiences for themselves. Excellent teachers know that learning takes place best when students can discover the subject matter for themselves. Setting up a meaningful experience is more powerful than any lecture. However, many classroom instructors cannot afford the expense to experience other cultures for themselves and rely on scholarly journals and secondhand accounts to learn. Committed to changing this reality for teachers, Global Exploration for Educators Organization (GEEO) the company American educators trust for discounted teacher travel, as described at http://www.geeo.org/mission/ is delighted to announce summer trips to China.
