Teaching students to become change-makers requires a strong foundation and meaningful interactions with global topics. This 4-week asynchronous online course explores critical global topics – human rights, educational access, and gender equity – through the lens of social action. Through readings, videos, interactive web-based activities, and discussion forums, you will become familiar with key issues related to these topics. You will examine case studies of how K-12 teachers have implemented curricular activities and projects to turn student learning into student action, and develop an action project to support students’ transformation from global learners to global citizens. You will then be able to use these cases as inspiration for integrating these themes into your own classroom teaching and school initiatives.
