Preparation for the comprehensive examination for students in Plan B.
Lawrence A Beck
This course explores how foundational domains related to global competence — including space, time, self and social issues — can be integrated into a variety of curriculum areas to prepare students for current and future lives as global citizens and to make a positive impact in the world. Curriculum in this vein supports student learning about interdependence, systems thinking, consciousness of self, awareness of others, and the limits of knowing in the world. This course will focus on curriculum development, instructional practices, and assessment activities that embed these values and support teachers in developing their global competence as well as the ability to engage students in similar journeys.
