Cultures of Peace
In line with the big
ideas and core competencies of the revised curriculum, this interactive workshop
provides resources for teachers and their students to create peaceful learning
communities, and to discuss current global realities. Activities will
incorporate the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and discuss
the effects of war and violence on children and youth. Lesson sequences will be provided and explored
surrounding the Palestine-Israel Conflict, and Olympic Truce, which was
recently revived by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to emphasize the
role sport can play in building a more peaceful world.
This workshop is available for online facilitation.
Global Education: Bringing Global Perspectives into your Classroom
(1.5–3 hours, includes off-screen working session and break)
looking for new ways to energize how you teach existing units? Introducing a
global perspective into your classroom can be challenging, but exciting. Bring
your existing ideas, a current unit, or theme to this workshop and let us show
you how to integrate, infuse, and deliver it from a global perspective at any
grade level. A global education approach activates student interest as it
increases personal engagement and involvement in the classroom, the surrounding
community, and our world. This workshop is beneficial for K–12.
