Lyiscott receives Fulbright

Jamila Lyiscott received a 2017 Fulbright-Hays Group Study Abroad Grant entitled, "Learning in Ghana: Linking Language, Literacy & Culture."  This U.S. Department of Education program "provides grants to support overseas projects in training, research, and curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies for teachers, students, and faculty engaged in a common endeavor."

Lyiscott and co-grantees, Esther Ohito and Susan Wilcox, will lead a group of pre-service and in-service teachers to Ghana during the summer of 2018 for an immersive experience toward developing culturally sustaining pedagogical skills.
