Resource Guide for Globalizing Curriculum

logoAbout this time last fall, I started the online course that was the first stage of the  Teachers for Global Classrooms program.  Since then, I’ve been working on and off to complete the “capstone project,” a resource guide for globalizing the curriculum at Durham Academy.  It was an immensely challenging, fascinating experience to try to pull together many strands of theory and personal experience to create that guide, which was submitted this week.  Please take a look if you’re interested:

Globalization Resource Guide (PDF)  or Global Education at DA (web site)

Here’s one part that I think has intriguing potential: a map of places where DA faculty members have lived.  A resource to be developed?

    Kudos to you for giving DA so much to think about. I had to print out the PDF so that I could add comments and ideas…all of which I will share when completed. I hope the faculty will be inspired by the examples and that the website will grow week-by-week. Who at DA will champion this effort in real time? You have created a benchmark, but who will continue to provide concrete incentives and a good measure of cheerleading to ensure continued progress? I am excited for all the possibilities…it takes a village!

    SO interesting! You could get alums and students to post where they have studied abroad, what programs, etc.
