CGEL is conducting research for a comprehensive report on the state of K-12 global education in DC public schools (both DCPS and charter) for release in winter 2011-12. We are now collecting information from schools, partners, universities, embassies, business, media, and other community members to help us understand and map out all the ways our students and teachers are learning and engaging globally.
This research project is part of our Global DC Initiative, funded through a “State Innovation” grant from the Longview Foundation for Education in World Affairs and International Understanding, in conjunction with the Asia Society. This report will be absolutely critical in helping us to understand the current landscape of K-12 global education in DC, and will inform all our work moving forward.
What are we looking for? We welcome any evidence of global teaching and learning in DC Public Schools or DC public charter schools.
- World Languages
- Curriculum and classroom projects
- Special programs or events
- School to school linkages, videoconferencing, and other uses of technology
- International travel
- Afterschool and summer programs
- Speakers and International visitors
- International Days and other school celebrations
- Globally focused honors, awards, or grants earned by DC students or teachers
- Teacher involvement in globally focused professional development or international experiences
