How can we engage students around global topics in meaningful ways that encourage them to become change-makers? This online course explores critical global topics – human rights, educational access, and gender equity – through the lens of social action. Through readings, videos, interactive web-based activities, and discussion forums, you will become familiar with key issues related to these topics and learn how to integrate these themes into classroom teaching and school initiatives. At the same time, you will examine case studies of how K-12 teachers have implemented curricular activities and projects to turn student learning into student action, and develop an action project to support students' transformation from global learners to global citizens.

Open to all K-12 educators.
