Good Word

Written by Cara J. Hayden

If your high school art teacher had jetted to Brazil the summer before you sat in her classroom, the lectures might have been a little more colorful. Pitt coordinated expeditions to Brazil, Egypt, and Ghana for dozens of schoolteachers this summer, thanks to grants from the Fulbright-Hays Foundation. As part of the trips, the participating art and social studies teachers developed new curricula and shared them with other American teachers when they returned stateside.
