Download lesson plans that can help you bring the world to your students


How can educators infuse global competency in daily lessons? Wallingford teacher Chris Stone, one of only five recipients nationwide of the Horace Mann Award for Teaching Excellence, participated in a year-long NEA Foundation fellowship program focused on just that.

Stone described the fellowship program, which included a trip to China, as "the most meaningful professional development experience I have participated in during my teaching career."

He added, "I gained a better sense of how diverse countries like China and the United States are similar in many fundamental economic and sociological ways. It was an unforgettable experience that will have a lasting impression on how I view the world and how I share the world with my students on a daily basis."
