The U.S. Department of Education recently awarded the Fulbright Hays Group Project Abroad grant to the University of Florida Center for Latin American Studies to implement a four-week curriculum development project in Ecuador and Peru titled, "The Andean "HATSS" Project: Reaching High Achievement for Teachers and Students of Spanish in Florida Schools." The HATSS project is a collaborative endeavor between the UF Center for Latin American Studies, the UF College of Education and Florida’s K-12 schools to design and implement innovative curricula using new educational technologies that will prepare students for an increasingly global and diverse society. The curriculum team consists of twelve K-12 foreign language teachers from eleven Florida counties and two UF faculty members.
