Many teacher are looking for ways to connect student learning to real world problem solving. It is hard to grasp where to start. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provide that starting point. World leaders committed to 17 Global Goals and through the #TeachSDGs movement our students can realize how their efforts can lead to the solution. As our group of educators were working with others in finding ways to connect the learning of the Global Goals with our curriculum we realized there was a need for building a collection of literature that could deepen the understanding. This is where the project of the Global Goals Book Collection was born. Our goal is to share the efforts of this project, the ongoing collection that has been created in a collaborative manner, and to provide additional resources to teachers looking to turn their students into global collaborators.
*Participants will become aware of the United Nations Sustainable Development Developmental Goals and the #TeachSDGs movement.
*Participants will navigate the Global Goals Book Collection and identify books that would support their curriculum and the efforts of the Global Goals.
