Our goal in the design of this
website is to provide teachers with resources that will serve to
increase student understanding of the increasing interconnections
found in our global society.
The curriculum modules found at this site were designed to enlighten
global citizenship and the responsibilities this entails while recognizing
the tensions this creates for national identity.
All modules work to improve students' understanding of effective
communication, meaningful empathy, multiple perspectives, global
interdependence, historical perspective, and individual and group identity.
Each of the modules included was created through a partnership
between New Jersey public school districts and Rutgers University.
