Have you been thinking about involving your students in a Global Project? Do you worry about the time a global project will take and how it will fit with curriculum expectations? Put your fears to rest! This session shows you how to make the most of your time with clear curriculum connections and assessment methods that make it possible for students to truly “Learn with the World!” Student work samples will be shared to help demonstrate how global projects and learning activities tie to success criteria and assessment expectations. This session introduces participants to several projects that connect students and teachers around the world, including Holiday Card Exchange, My Hero, Art Miles, Folk and Fairy Tales around the World and Deforestaction.
NOTE: This webinar presents examples of work from K-8, however, projects that are also applicable to some secondary curriculum are discussed as well.
