Global Classrooms – Katrina Macht of Hillside Intermediate School is collaborating with fellow educators to create global classrooms. Teachers are guiding students through research-based investigations that incorporate issue-based themes related to environmental and social justice. Partner classes meet via video chat to select issues that resonate with each of their own communities. They identify their shared commonalities and work on solutions to shared problems. The goal is to celebrate cultural diversity and global connections. This is a Frederick L. Hipp Project.
