Connecting Local and Global Who else around the world is affected by the issues, concerns, and trends that affect our community? How does this global issue, concern, or trend affect our community? What are some of the familiar aspects of all cultures, and how are they addressed similarly or differently in our community and in communities around the world? “Connect Local and Global,” Asia Society Education http://asiasociety.org/education-learning/afterschool/connect-local-and-global
Global Approaches to Curriculum Engaging students by addressing global challenges. Globalizing the context for learning. Connecting to universal themes. Illuminating the global history of knowledge. Learning through international collaboration.
Qualities of a Good Project Is the project guided by relevant driving questions? Does it take into account perspectives from beyond the United States? How? Does it use primary sources from around the world, as appropriate? Does it have real-world outcomes? “Simulations: Real-World Practice,” Asia Society Education http://asiasociety.org/education-learning/resources-schools/partnership-ideas/simulations-real-world-practice
A strong driving question in global learning should . . . Invite multiple answers Be un-Googleable Be more “kid friendly” than “teacher happy” Require an answer (in the global context) Be authentic and grounded in real-world problems (as unsimulated as possible) Give students a real-world role
