"I am pairing my gifted students with international students at my school as buddies. They have much to learn from each other but rarely cross paths because our international students are generally relegated to low level classes due to limited English proficiency. Also, all of my students are getting a Passport booklet (for which I am contracting with a graphic designer on Etsy) in which they can earn stamps for various forms of global engagement."

"We are getting a traveling teddy bear this year to get my students excited about learning about the world and the UN sustainability goals... so excited to get it and contribute to its blog!"

"We invite you to harness the power of Google Tour Builder to share your school and community with other classrooms around the world. You can showcase the art, architecture, and education system of your community via a Google Tour, and submit it to be placed on our crowd sourced map below. You can also submit your contact information to be listed as a potential connection to meet virtually with other classrooms via Google Hangouts.
You'll find step-by-step directions on our "How To Participate" page on this website. After you build your tour, submit your information via our Google Form on the "Participate" page on this website."

"I am piloting an elective course: Exploring Global perspectives with Personalized learning. It incorporates a lot of the UN’s Sustainable Goals and uses the resources "The World's Largest Lesson."

"I am expanding my Contemporary Issues class from a semester to a full year and from an elective to a core class in our new Community and Global studies Academy. The biggest changes are more time for a action project and more focus on solutions (SDG’s) than the problems. Hopefully we will be collaborating (or at least communicating) with classrooms in Japan, Indonesia and Germany"
