About this course:

This 19-week course, specifically designed for au pairs who are required to continue their education as a part of their experience in the U.S., is offered in a blended format--partially a media-rich, self-paced online environment and partially an instructor-led, cohort-based model. Successful participants receive six quarter units. Participants read lessons, write, share resources, network with one another, and collaborate on special projects, as well as explore web links, play games, and take virtual field trips, all designed to further their understanding of U.S. culture. The interdisciplinary course of study includes U.S. History: Eras 1-5 (up to Civil War and Reconstruction), which have mini-modules on economics and geography; English-language study, including weekly reading and writing exercises; arts in the U.S., including virtual field trips and activities reflective of historical eras studied by participants; U.S. literature: the readings which reflect the eras studied in the U.S. history module; and career counseling and interest inventories to determine future directions for the participants.
