About this learning opportunity
This full day interactive session will unpack the competency Building Cultural and Global Citizenship and explore what it means when we ask students to actively engage with cultural, environmental, political or economic systems. You will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with your colleagues to examine links to Alberta’s Programs of Study, learn practical strategies to support development of this competency, examine effective formative assessment strategies, including engaging in collaborative work to build criteria related to this competency.
You will experience the power of the applying this competency to your own learning, which in turn you can use with your students! Walk away with ideas and strategies that you can use in any one of your classroom the very next day, that will result in helping your students to become responsible citizens, that contribute to healthy and sustainable communities - both within and outside the classroom!
This learning opportunity is being provided through a grant from Alberta Education.
