February 2020 – Building Global Communities
This month we are discussing strategies Fellows use to help our world feel more like one large community. Specifically, Fellows are connecting students with other students around the world. As travelers and explorers, this value is near and dear to Fund for Teachers Fellows, but how can we embody this in our instruction and inspire our students to think globally? All February we worked with Fellows to share video, webinars, downloadable classroom resources, articles, and more on our social channels.
Each month, we will host deep dives into Fellow-inspired themes—topics like “Citizen Scientists,” “Collaborative Discourse,” “Discerning Truth from Fiction,” or “Restorative Justice.” Supporting these themes are conversations on social media, poll questions, downloadable classroom materials, webinars, Fellow-led content, articles, and more. We are currently planning our 2020 calendar and would like your input. What theme sounds most interesting to you?
