Bringing Global Experiences into the Classroom Through a Sustained PartnershipGlobal competence is a vital 21st century learning outcome for all students who hope to thrive in the globally interactive and competitive future. In line with ESD's Mission and our Educational Philosophy, our newly expanded Global Competency Council, led by Eleanor Arnold, strives to connect ESD curriculum with real-world experiences that help students turn their interests and knowledge into lived empathy and practiced skills. While the GCC has been busy this year across all levels of the school, we are especially excited about a new partnership that is developing in the Middle School this year.
Guided by Lindsey Cullins, GCC member and Curriculum Specialist, and her Junior World Affairs Club members, the fifth and sixth graders are forging a relationship with The Janada L. Batchelor Foundation for Children and its school in the village of Kitongo in Tanzania. Educating over 350 local boys and girls, the school also serves as a home for 54 orphaned and vulnerable girls from the region. In addition to its educational programs that rank the school 18th out of 8,200 schools, the school focuses on sustainability through its permaculture farm, healthcare clinic, water project, and community empowerment programs for its students and their families.
