I have been teaching literature-based country studies for a number of years. Engaging students in an interdisciplinary exploration of another country’s stories, culture, and geography is an excellent way to help students develop a empathy, understanding, and a sense of global citizenship.
During these units, my students love “traveling’ to new places, taking pretend plane rides, viewing virtual city tours, and exploring images and artifacts from other countries. I created these “travel tips” as teaching points to guide and organize my instruction in an explicit and intentional way.
I like to tell my students that a secret travel agency has sent us these tips to help us on our journey. I introduce a new tip every few days to help launch lessons and activities. The tips can also be used to create anchor charts, or for any other creative reason you imagine!
