Impact Award

Participants of the "Lesson Planet: Teaching Sustainability" workshop are invited to create curricular materials related to teaching global studies that can be shared with other teachers. The Center for Global Studies invites submissions of lesson plans (developed individually or in groups) that can be made publicly available through the CGS website for instructors and students to use. Applicants will receive up to $500 for their work.

These lesson plans might include, but are not limited to:

  • A multi-media course segment on a non-U.S. culture (or cultures), using Power Point, video, and the Internet to form a coherent plan of study for students.
  • An inquiry-guided project focused on sustainability in the global context, including all relevant materials (presentations, handouts, etc.) that would be utilized in the lesson.
  • The creation of an interactive online lesson plan with global content that could be accessed by students and instructors.
