Teach the World Workshop #1: Culture Box Workshop (not hosted by GlobalPDX)
October 13, 2017
Invite the World to Your Classroom with Culture Boxes!
A Workshop for K-12 Teachers & Youth Program Leaders
The Global & Multicultural Resource Center (GMRC) is the heart of World Affairs Council of Oregon’s K-12 Global Classroom Youth and Education Program housing an extensive 30 year collection of Culture Boxes on over 100 countries of the world. These boxes are filled with hands-on, authentic treasures and lessons about the art, culture, and daily life of people from every continent.
Its Equity Materials Library addresses multicultural, anti-bias, civil and human rights issues both here and around the globe. Our Cultural Immersion Program helps transform your school into a microcosm of the world with cultural displays, guest speakers, artists-in-residence, and props. Last year our Culture Boxes were enjoyed by over 10,000 students K – 12.
You are invited to attend this first ever Culture Box Workshop where you will “dig in” and explore these treasures and visit with teachers K-12 who have had extensive experience with them. Please register early the space is limited to 40 people. The $35 fee includes breakfast . Please email Karen Ettinger at [email protected] for a list of Culture Boxes and their Alignment with Oregon Standards and Common Core.
