Globally empathetic, standards-based web lessons

In this panel, I would introduce the website "The Global Lives Project" to the audience, explaining the mission of the site as well as basic navigation of the site. I would lead participants through searching the film footage, and engage the participants in various activities that can be used with students in the classroom using the footage. Additionally, I would introduce the curriculum that has been developed to use in tandem with the site, curriculum that is linked to the Common Core standards; is cross-disciplinary; and includes lessons for usage in elementary through high school classrooms.
