Peace Corps Worldwise School Curriculum

Global competency is a 21st century skill. Students need these skills in order to compete in the job market.

The Peace Corps have thus created the Worldwise Schools curriculum, a way to bring global learning into the classroom. The program provides easy-to-integrate lesson plans to teachers and tons of creative ways to connect students with issues facing the global community. These lesson plans directly relate to course content!

All of the resources are available online, the materials are interactive and engaging, and they present problems for students to try to solve. The information on the site is also up-to-date and relevant to students. When you search the site, you are able to choose the subject, grade level, country, and region to select a topic that is most relevant and appropriate for your students!

This is definitely a resource to consider using as a future teacher who will need to consider global awareness in my curriculum.
