Our middle school Global Gateway curriculum is designed to provide you and your students with essential attitudes, skills and knowledge for global citizenship, while exploring the complexity of current global issues. Through embedded social entrepreneurship principles, it promotes an understanding of the student as an active participant in the world, with an important role and crucial responsibilities.
The curriculum is aligned to the Common Core Standards, P21 Standards - 21st Century Skills, National Educational Technology Standards, and Career Technical Education Standards and organized in the following six main themes: Global Society, Global Geography, Global Environment, Global Education, Global Economy, Global Politics.
"Climate" is one of three in a Global Environment unit. Students will investigate various global environmental challenges, as well as possible solutions. Protecting the environment involves political, economic and social responses. Students will explore climate change and natural hazards, relating these concepts to selected social entrepreneurship regions of study.
