A Citizen of the World
Most would agree that learning to be a global citizen is an essential element of modern education. But what does this really mean? Can students learn this without travel? If we could do anything, what would an ideal global experience look like for early adolescents? How important are foreign languages in middle school, and can we teach them more effectively than the normal group classes?
This Salon event will be hosted at Sandbox Suites, a co-working space at 567 Sutter St. We'll provide light food. Because of the small-group nature of these conversations, we have a limited number of spots available, and ask that you reserve a seat if interested, and please open the seat if you become unavailable to attend. We look forward to a rich conversation!
About Millennium School's Salon Series
Millennium School's Salons are conversations about essential topics in education. In each conversation, a small group of 10-20 people dives into a key topic around what matters most in adolescent education, what school could ideally be, and how to make it happen. We aim to draw a range of people with important perspectives: parents, students, educators, scientists, researchers and others. No expertise in the topic is required; an open and curious mind is all we ask!
