The thought above, from Stough Elementary School’s art teacher Daniel James Kennington, sums things up perfectly! And this same sentiment can be applied to music, physical education, computer, language and any other resource class. For those of us who are passionate about making global education a priority and not simply a privilege, the goal is to make such teaching and learning accessible to all – all students and all teachers, through all subject areas.
Inspired by Daniel’s statement, the focus of this month’s #globalclassroom chat is global integration beyond the expected place – the social studies classroom. Let’s chat about how global concepts can be tied to curriculum standards in art, music, physical education, computer, and media classes.
So bring your thoughts, rally your specialist teachers, and join us for what is sure to be a chat full of wonderful global integration ideas!
Q1: Think about special/resource/elective classes. Why is #global integration important &/or valuable in these areas? #globalclassroom
Q2: How have you seen regular classroom Ts & specialist Ts working collaboratively on #global integration? #globalclassroom
Q3: How have you &/or colleagues integrated #global content into fine #arts & other special/resource/elective classes? #globalclassroom
Q4: What helpful resources have you found for #global integration in fine #arts & other special/resource/elective classes? #globalclassroom
Based on past experience with the #globalclassroom chats, we are trialling an adjusted chat timetable, with two (rather than three) chats typically starting on the second or third Saturday of the month. The sharing and learning that comes from these discussions enriches our practice and the learning experiences of our students. We hope that you will join us!
