World Savvy Classrooms
The World Savvy Classrooms program integrates the highest level of global competence learning into classrooms by combining professional development and consulting for educators with multi-disciplinary projects for middle and high school students. The Classrooms program is aligned with and supports Common Core state standards, ensuring students learn the required ‘core’ content mandated by state and national standards, in a way that establishes real-world connections to the material.
Every three years, World Savvy selects a theme to frame student learning and projects. This approach adds depth and focus to student work, and guarantees that learning is relevant and current. World Savvy’s 2013-16 theme, Population & Progress, helps students explore how a growing population defines progress, analyze the evolving nature of our collective challenges, and develop innovations that address these issues.
