GLOPO goes to EPCOT!-updated


[Now with new and improved travel dates]

Yes, you read that correctly; we have the opportunity to go to EPCOT as a part of our coursework for IB Global Politics. NBPS partners with Disney's Youth Education Series each year to bring a group of students to Disney's Introduction to Global Citizenship. Here, you'll have the opportunity (among other things) to consider and synthesize your understanding of concepts such as complex interdependence, cosmopolitanism, and communitarianism outside the friendly confines of the classroom; albeit in the friendly confines of the most magical place on earth. While we've run this trip primarily for 9th graders, I see two reasons why you should attend this trip. First, the topic of global citizenship is near and dear to all that we study. Second, none of you went on this trip as 9th graders. The trip will occur on Friday 1 November; we'll be up and back in the same day. The price of the trip is $189 and includes breakfast or a snack in the morning; lunch and dinner vouchers in EPCOT; transportation; and Park and Youth Educational Series tickets.

Please let me know if you're interested in attending this year's trip by (1) commenting to this blog post and (2) downloading and completing both the enrollment and medical forms, and (3) submitting these forms no later than 30 September. This is a fixed deadline for enrollment, so please make sure that you're submitting your required forms promptly.
