Global Awareness, Diversity and Cultural Sensitivity in the Classroom

As we prepare students for college and career, knowledge of the world is invaluable. What are we doing to foster global awareness and global empathy in our classrooms? What responsibility do educators in North Carolina have to teach students about the world? How prepared are our educators to understand and serve the students in North Carolina’s diverse school community? In this module, we will share ideas for global education and examine the Final Report of the State Board of Education’s Task Force on Global Education. We will also focus on the correlation between global education and the North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards.
