2014 Trip to Morocco

Date: July 27 to August 10, 2014

Modern Morocco with all its richness and complexities, as well Morocco’s centuries old history and cultural traditions are often unknown to Americans. To address this gap, the World Affairs Council and the American Moroccan Alliance have developed a three-part program on Morocco, with a special emphasis on Moroccan culture, to bring some much-needed context to the American public and, particularly, to American students and teachers.

The first post travel event for teachers and 9-12th grade students will be held in HEB ISD on September 27, 2014 from 10 AM to 2 PM in conjunction with our annual Junior WAC meeting. Teacher travelers will briefly present units over Morocco and lunch will be included. Register now.

2014 selected teachers, announced at the May 17 Portrait of Morocco Program, include:

  • Asiya Roland from Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD
  • Stan Reid from Aledo ISD
  • Greg Hill from Mesquite ISD
