As we look at the news every day, the connections among religion, economics, and political struggles across the world is unmistakable. However, most educators and social leaders are unskilled in the discussion of these issues in an academic setting. The North Bay International Studies Project is presenting a 4-day summer program for 20 middle and high school teachers on Global Connections that integrates the goal and methodology of culture related dialogue and discussion developed by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation's Face to Faith program. The culminating goal is for teachers and students to build respect and understanding across cultures and to create a Face-to-Face international experience with students in one of the 19 participating countries via video conferencing.
Participating teachers will engage in developing a Teaching Guide that highlights the integration of Common Core and the interactive learning and discussion strategies of the Face to Faith program.
