Today brings International Education Week 2017 to a close. At a time when global issues seem closer to home than ever before, we’ve been grateful for the opportunity to spend a week looking at how we can help our students develop cultural competencies, empathize with people from vastly different backgrounds, and feel confident in their abilities to take on the momentous challenges they will face.
To bid farewell to the week, we’ve compiled the most popular articles we’ve published on global education into one convenient list in order to fuel what we hope is a newly-found passion for global education. They’re organized into three sections:
- The “What” and “Why,” for if you find your motivation waning throughout the year.
- Resources for teachers looking to help their students develop global skills.
- Resources for principals, superintendents and other admins looking to affect change toward a global outlook in their school or district.
