Strategies for Embedding Global Education

Water Walk Example:

"Teaching for global competence occurs in the selection of curriculum content and instructional planning that enables students to meet national or local learning standards while at the same time providing students the chance to frame, analyze, communicate and respond to issues of global significance."

If the "Water Walk" was a project at your school:

  1. What would be some natural connections to the NC Standard Course of Study (Common Core State Standards for ELA and Mathematics and North Carolina Essential Standards)?
  2. What would be some of the activities you would implement in your classroom to foster this global awareness?
