Welcome to this collection of resources, meant to help you incorporate the ideas of global competency and citizenship into your own classroom. Everything in here is fairly universal across the Social Studies, English Language Arts, and practically everywhere else in a school curriculum with a little adaptation. The main goal of this collection is to show you that any teacher can incorporate the ideas of global competency into their classroom, and in fact many of you already are!
Global Education is something that a lot of us do already in the teaching of social studies, but by being purposeful we can further push our students out of their individual "bubbles," and inspire powerful learning that allows them to become advocates for themselves, their communities. Through this, they can forge their own global identities and develop their global citizenship.
The materials included in this site were created and compiled during my own participation as a Fulbright Teacher for Global Scholars during the 2020-2021 school year, and are continuously added on and updated so be sure you check back often. Use the buttons below to navigate to the separate sections of this site. The "Study" section includes resources and materials for incorporating global competencies into your own school, the "Travel" section includes observations from the international portion of the experience, and the "Teach" section includes materials developed from the experience to include global competency with a focus on citizenship. To learn more about me and the work I have done, please visit the "Mission" page, tabbed along the top bar.
