Seattle-based CTQ-Global teachers Rachel Evans and Noah Zeichner were invited to share their classroom and global expertise at the Partnership for Global Learning Conference (#PGL14) hosted by the Asia Society in Brooklyn, NY, June 27-28.
The teachers presented two sessions: The Road to Globalized Education: Integrating 21st Century skills and the CCSS and Teaching About Toilets and the Global Sanitation Crisis. In The Road to Globalized Education, they discussed how the Common Core and global competencies naturally work together and shared real examples of lessons, units, and projects that are designed with both CCSS and global competence in mind. In Teaching About Toilets, the teachers shared how to tackle the global sanitation crisis in the classroom, giving curriculum resources and examples of lessons and projects that get students to think critically about the connections between sanitation and other global issues, such as water scarcity, health, and access to education.
