Current Events Awareness . NOW Classroom . NOW Current Events Awareness / Media Literacy Raising student awareness of global issues is increasingly important as the countries of the world become more interdependent. At the same time, consuming domestic news with a critical eye is vital to enhancing democracy and defeating narrow-mindedness. Students also need an understanding of the world’s economy, politics, social structures and environment in order to make the best decisions about how to live their own lives. Project Based Learning – The World is the Stage The best educational decision I have made in the past 26 years was introducing Project-Based Learning (PBL). As a secondary school principal, I witnessed first hand the disengagement of students in their schooling coupled to their inability to see the relevance in what they were being taught. Like all school principals, I wanted to provide the best educational opportunities for my students and teaching staff, in an attempt to arrest this disconnection of interest. I believe that PBL has been the answer for Parramatta Marist High (PMH) in Sydney, Australia.

What the Little League World Series Can Teach Us in the Classroom If you didn’t follow this month’s Little League World Series, you missed out on some amazing baseball and really great kids. I live in Lewisberry, PA. We are located approximately 100 miles from Williamsport, PA, the home to the Little League World Series. The close proximity makes it a given that I will pay attention to the series each year. Not to mention, it is just good old fashioned fun. This year, however, there was an added incentive to draw my attention.

Home « Keeping Pace Teaching world cultures The mission of the North Carolina State Board of Education calls upon teachers to prepare students to be “globally competitive for work and postsecondary education.” An important part of meeting that goal is to introduce students to world cultures in instruction. Some teachers welcome the challenge of global learning, and look for every opportunity to infuse their lessons with international content. Many teach cultures expertly, but we’ve all heard horror stories of cultural lessons gone wrong — the discussion that succeeds only in reinforcing stereotypes, the “re-enactment” of cultural or religious ceremonies that show gross disrespect.
