Description

This year-long California Global Education Project (CGEP) for K-12th grade teachers begins with a summer institute, continues throughout the school year with one full-day follow-up meeting on Thursday, December 5, webinars, and other local support, and culminates with a student exhibition of learning and action projects. Throughout this program, educators will interact with academic scholars, professionals, community organizers, and colleagues to learn to:

  • Build knowledge about sustainability and the environment
  • Develop students’ global competence
  • Integrate design thinking into instructional plans
  • Engage students in relevant learning and problem solving
  • Facilitate student-driven sustainable communities action projects

This program is designed for interdisciplinary studies and the teaching of environmental literacy and global competence across subject areas. Sustainable communities value and embrace social, economic, and ecological diversity. As such, we are looking for diverse representation among participants and the students they serve. We will tailor content and resources to the group’s needs while focusing on strategies for equity and engagement for all students.

  • Participate in 4-day Summer Institute
  • One full-day follow-up meeting during the FY20 school year (Thursday, December 5)
  • Develop and implement instructional plans based on program goals
  • Engage students in action projects and showcase of student learning
