MMUN Free ONLINE Seminar
GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP SEMINAR SERIES
Interested in multiculturalism and solidarity during the aftermath of COVID-19? Join us this summer on alternate Fridays to hear panelists from different disciplines provide their insight on fostering youth development as world citizens.
Using Today’s International Affairs as the Medium for Teaching Social and Global Studies
COVID-19 has demonstrated how interdependent and interconnected we are. Given the reality of our global world, how can schools leverage international events to teach a global perspective. Social and global studies focus on the interconnectedness of the human and natural environment and the interrelated nature of events, problems, or ideas. It is important for students to understand that activities or decisions made by individuals or nations in one part of the world can have an important impact on both the local and world environment and on people in other parts of the world. Hear panelists discuss activities and guidelines for teaching social and global studies with current affairs.
