With heightened expectations for what it means to meet the needs of our graduates as they prepare for college, career, and citizenship in the 21st century alongside the requirements of meeting state standards and district curricula, the teacher often feels pulled in several directions as to how to accomplish what can often look like competing goals. This workshop, using the case study of child labor during the Industrial Revolution, will demonstrate how teachers can “globalize” the curriculum – making meaningful modern connections and offering suggestions for instruction and assessment that embody the skills and thinking required in the digital age including electronic surveys, blogging, web site evaluation, skyping with outside experts, and creating and posting video clips.

Attendees will walk with the following tools:
• Design model and criteria for a performance assessment.
• Strategies for embedding important digital and information literacy skills.
• Strategies for globalizing curricula.
