As World View’s two-day K-12 Global Education Symposium 2013: Population and Global Migration approaches, the World View staff is excitedly preparing for up to 400 North Carolina educators to learn about how to incorporate global education into their classrooms. Julie Marantette Kinnaird, Assistant Director for Outreach and Katharine Robinson, Assistant Director for Curriculum, hope that teachers will walk away with an increased comfort to introduce global issues within their own capacity. As their content-based global knowledge expands, they will learn best practices for implementing this global knowledge for all content area and grade levels. Participants will forge new connections through sessions, exhibits, the university, and one another, as well as the World View website and staff.
While you are at the Symposium, please visit LEARN NC’s concurrent session “Explore the World in Your Classroom with LEARN NC” on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at 2:45pm. Attendees will learn strategies not only for teaching students about world cultures, but also for including students from global cultures in their own classrooms.
