Global Classroom Educator Workshop

The Global Classroom Workshop is a three-day intensive educator training which aims to provide a global component to current curriculum. Participants will hear from a variety of presenters who represent educational organizations that provide complimentary international resources to educators. Teachers will learn about National Geographic lessons, dozens of education websites, MENSA gifted & talented hands on strategies, Population Connection materials, Asia Society materials and much more! In today’s globalized world, an effective domestic education agenda must address global needs and trends and aim to develop a globally competent citizenry. It is no longer enough to focus solely on ensuring that students have essential reading, writing, mathematics, and science skills. Seating for 75 teachers. Open to 3rd -12th grade teachers of all subjects that want to infuse more global elements in their courses. The June event provides SS credit, three ethnic meals and materials at NO COST.

In the stillness after conflict, after the blood dries and the screams fade, the memory of violence transforms survivors into prisoners of their own pain. How do whole societies recover from devastating conflict? Can survivors live—converse, smile, and even laugh—beside someone who blinded them, killed their parents, or murdered their children? Can victims and perpetrators work together to rebuild their lives? This life-changing documentary explores the intersections of justice and forgiveness as survivors heal from these tragedies.

Only snacks provided- please eat dinner before attending.
