Get involved! Make a Difference!
Each semester, over 120 USC students team-teach in local high school classrooms.
Professors in the School of International Relations offer credit options in their courses for TIRP outeach.
Professors in Philosophy and Religion support TEP outreach.
Ask your professors if they are willing to support a service learning credit option in their courses for TIRP or TEP.
CALIS recruits high school teachers to offer one of their classes, usually from the required social science program of 10th grade World History, 11th grade U.S. History, or 12th grade Government/Economics.
The teacher selects a topic and reviews each session with regard to the team's level of preparation, use of active learning strategies, and the class response to the lesson.
Every outreach volunteer writes a report for each of the four teaching sessions to describe the content and analytical tools, and how students responded.
Reports are posted to a webboard and reviewed for approval by CALIS staff - who are themselves USC students and IR majors.
CALIS and TIRP earned national recognition from the
Goldman Sachs Foundation Prizes for Excellence in International Education
for effective use of analytical tools and direct service to high schools
