2020-2021 Call for Proposals: K-12 Course Development Projects in World Languages and Global Learning
The Atlanta Global Studies Center seeks proposals from K-12 teachers for course development projects in less commonly taught languages and global learning. Proposals should describe course development projects that will result in engaging lesson ideas for teachers and students, easy-to-follow lesson plans for a unit, reproducible teaching and classroom materials in the target language or content area, assessment tools and resources for extending lessons. Preference will be given to applications that propose to develop online teaching tools and/or virtual exchange opportunities for students.
Grant funding will be awarded as a professional stipend to compensate teachers for devoting their time to develop quality materials to enhance language instruction in the target languages and/or global competence in another content area.
