Global Book Bags

FREE Workshop Series for Elementary Teachers

Global Book Bags are learning resources for students to take home to develop global competencies, practice literacy skills, and engage parents/guardians in learning activities. Each Global Book Bag consists of an age appropriate book, a set of instructions, and any materials necessary to complete the learning activities described in the instructions. These book bags were designed for elementary grade students to take home for 4-5 days and share with an older family member but can be adapted for instructional activities in the classroom.

This workshop is for elementary grade teachers and librarians interested in developing global competence and literacy skills through children's literature and home (or classroom) learning activities. Participants will learn about Global Book Bags and Global Competence, explore literature with global themes, and create book bags to take back to their classrooms

April 27 is the initial meeting. $100 mini-grants available for those participants who create and submit 3 book bags from a variety of titles.
