Welcome!

img_4110Welcome to Teach, Wander, Love! This website was created to be a resource for Global Education for the students, staff, and community of Boca Raton Community High School. Through the utilization of global education resources and competencies, we can truly create students who are global citizens that will have a profound impact on our community and the world. The Global Education Resources posted to this site will help all teachers to create classrooms that are more globally aware, as well as to develop lesson plans of their own that incorporate global competencies across the curriculum.

What is Global Education?

Global education is the process of teaching students how to be global citizens. It works by harnessing our natural wonder and connection to the world and others around us. The goal is to give students the tools and knowledge to master the global competencies in their school curriculum. Global education is not a specific course or a part of a class, but rather an approach to all subject areas and learning. By infusing global competencies into our lessons and curriculum, we ensure that our students become global citizens, ready to learn, explore, and make an impact on their world.

How to Use this Guide

This site is divided into three main components. The study section of the site is a place where teachers can find the basics on global education including resources and assessment tools. The teach section is where teachers learn how to implement global education in their classroom. Lastly, the travel section is a place to discover more about the international field experience through my travel blog and research I conducted in Colombia during the three weeks I was there with the Teachers for Global Classroom Program.

I hope you find this site useful for your classroom!
