“The humanities, done right, are the crucible in which our evolving notions of what it means to be fully human are put to the test; they teach us, incrementally, endlessly, not what to do, but how to be.” Mark Slouka

HUMANITIES TOURS

CIVICS AND CITIZENSHIP
RELIGIOUS STUDIES

Latitude Group Travel custom designs tours to link to the Civics and Citizenship and Religious Studies curricula. Our expertise enables us to develop or identify specific, curriculum-linked, experiential learning activities to engage your students in active learning.  We also take into account the General Capabilities in the Australian Curriculum, the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile and cross curriculum priorities.  We can design for any international curriculum if your school is not in Australia

ALMOST ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!

There are endless tour options that we can offer.  We work in consultation with you to carefully craft the ultimate customised tour.  Your tour is designed around any of your chosen humanities subject/s and the electives within those subjects that your school has selected.  You may also choose to combine some subjects on the one tour.  You can rest assured that all subjects will receive the same attention and inclusion of experiential learning activities that engage your students in the learning process.  Please see more under Combining Subjects on The One Tour

SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY

Safe and secure travel is paramount for us. Between our Managing Director and CEO alone, we have over 35 + years travel experience, in particular in worldwide, educational, student, group travel.

COMBINING SUBJECTS ON THE ONE TOUR

Our expertise allows us to organise your tour so that several subject groups can travel together successfully.  Imagine all of your groups concurrently engaged in their own area of interest – workshop, clinic, class or themed guided tour (and more).  Combine your IB students with your mainstream curriculum and we will ensure relevant activities for both groups.  Later, enjoy sightseeing and a range of other experiences together, so the groups feel as one.  Considering a tour in this way will assist with economies of scale and helps meet your minimum participant number requirement.

Unconditional support every step of the way

At Latitude Group Travel, we’re here to make your travel experience enjoyable and stress free. We simplify the group travel process for you by taking care of all the details, leaving nothing to chance. From the moment you start planning your trip, we are with you every step of the way. Your experience is delivered in one seamless process and all the planning, preparation, logistics and hard work is done for you. With our knowledgeable tour directors by your side and our whole team behind you, you will have an extraordinary, safe, easy and rewarding travel experience – without any of the hassle!

OTHER HUMANITIES SUBJECT ACTIVITIES

Our itineraries allow your group to take in iconic sights, combined with as many classes, workshops, themed guided tours and curriculum-linked, experiential learning activities as you wish. We ensure that academic and practical endeavours are age and experience appropriate. Our knowledge of the curriculum (state, national and International Baccalaureate, along with any other curriculum you may teach) and our consultative process, ensures that we understand the learning outcomes required.

Example experiential learning activities:

CIVICS AND CITIZENSHIP

  • Take one of our carefully crafted tours to Canberra to study the development of Australian Democracy
  • Take an international tour to visit global organisations, such as the United Nations. Learn how NGOs such as these have responded to issues of international importance.
  • Workshops, guided tours and lectures will assist students to take a global view of major international events and crises.
  • Visit the parliament of other countries and stay for a session to see how parliament works
  • Study Magna Carta or Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights.  Once you are in front of these ground-breaking documents, you’ll want to know all about their impact on the citizens of that era
  • Visit iconic Ellis Island with its tour explaining the situation that greeted all immigrants to America.  You’ll learn about what they faced and how some of the immigrants were turned away or faced a long stay in the hospital right there on the Island
  • Students will be guided to analyse and evaluate how to better handle or avoid these devastating episodes.
  • International tours can also be designed to study the development (or otherwise) of democracy in the country/countries visited

RELIGIOUS STUDIES

  • In Italy visit major religious sites including Assisi, Montecassino, Padua and more. Learn about the extraordinary Saints associated with each location
  • Students will experience an authentic Chassidic Jewish community in an up close and personal way on this Discovery Walking Tour, led by a rabbi. Both moving and educational, this tour will open your eyes to this richly diverse community and take you to sites not generally accessible to the public.
  • Experience the soul-stirring power of Gospel music in Harlem.
  • Explore historic Harlem and witness its Renaissance on a tour
  • Explore Christian ethics with a discussion on euthanasia, war or pacifism, human rights and a range of beliefs in God
  • Allow different religions to come alive through learning dances from religious festivals. Study their meaning

OPEN THEIR EYES TO A WORLD OF POSSIBILITY

We’re committed to helping teachers and their students bring Humanities to life, by creating memorable and unique experiences.

Whether the focus is on studies of various religions and beliefs, societies and cultures or civics and citizenship, our intent is to engage the students in each component or subject. Understanding a belief or a culture usually takes getting up-close and personal, so our activities allow your group to meet and hear from those whom you wish to understand. Tours and experiences within the countries, cultures or religions that are the focus of your studies will ensure that your students will come back have created meaningful relationships and a clear understanding of what has been studied in workshops and other experiential learning activities.
