Dear GCE Community:

As we prepare for spring term 2012, I have designed a workshop for our staff to help catalyze even more advanced curriculum design.  As always, this generative process will result in global, integrated, inquiry- and project-based blended learning curriculum (that lives online and in-person), and that is aligned with both the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals and the Common Core Standards.  To learn more about our curriculum design process and outcome, please view our GCE Passport.

Please note that there are several posts on this topic; this is part 1.  All feedback from staff is posted as “comments” to each post.  The process starts with reflective prompts, moves into discussion, invites public sharing on the blog, grows into curriculum, and is tested through the relationship between instruction and student learning.

PART 1: What do you want your students to “feel” each day?
