10th Grade International Program

As part of Symposium, the 10th grade international travel program explored tolerance in medieval Spain.   La Convivencia (“the Coexistence”) is the period in Spanish history between 711 and 1492 when Muslims, Jews and Christians lived and worked together in relative peace.  Our journey took us to Andalucía, the southwest corner of the Iberian peninsula, and the cities of Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada. Students individualized their experience by creating a study topic to focus on while in Spain.
