Live the Osa, LLC is teaming with The National Writing Project of New Hampshire to bring you this 10-day summer workshop in Costa Rica. This trip is an opportunity for teachers to live in Costa Rica, reflect on cultural differences, attend local schools, see the natural beauty of the Osa Peninsula, share ideas with colleagues and reflect on your experiences through writing.
Live the Osa is more than just a program. This is an opportunity to become part of this rural Costa Rican community, to live and work with the locals as well as collaborate with US colleagues. This program is based on strong, trustworthy connections within this welcoming community. The experience will inherently change your perspective on life and create new ideas for your classroom.
Approximately $2400 per person includes everything, except Plymouth State University credits (which are available for an extra fee). Please inquire about professional development funds.
