Join our new Global Collaborative Classrooms Project - Food and Culture!
This is not your typical pen-pal type of collaborative project. It's much more. Students will be engaged in authentic, meaningful and rigorous research focused on real-world issues from fitness, health and nutrition to cultural studies, environmental studies and social issues.
Your students will be collaborating with students from around the world. Our goal is to have students from every country on the planet participating!
Whether you have one class period a week to devote to the project or you want to make it a six-week unit or a full-year project, it's flexible enough for you to participate meaningfully. It's also a great project for an After School program!
The curriculum will be aligned to the United Nations Millennium Goals, to the United States White House Issues, and to national standards for the USA. We invite additional information on alignment to standards in other countries or to programs such as International Baccalaureate.
Students will develop critical 21st century skills such as collaboration, creativity, problem solving, adaptability, multicultural skills and this project provides them with a way to make the content of the curriculum relevant. Service learning and multiple literacies will be built in as well.
