5/8 Developing Internationally Focused Students, Chicago Council on Global Affairs

Developing Internationally Focused Students

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs

 

While some Chicago-area classrooms are responding to a progressively connected and globalized world, others are limited by a lack of resources and funding. What does a globally-focused education look like and how can access to such programs be ensured across all school districts? The 2017 class of Koldyke Global Teachers traveled to Morocco, France, Chile, and South Africa, to deepen their knowledge of global education models and bring cross-cultural experiences back to their classrooms. Join educators, students, and implementers as they share stories and best practices for guiding future global citizens in Chicago and beyond.
