If you are seeking to inspire global awareness, critical thinking and student engagement, share the Global Oneness Project with your secondary classroom teacher partners.
The Global Oneness Project offers an award-winning, interdisciplinary collection of films, photo essays, and articles exploring cultural, social, and environmental issues. All resources are free and are accompanied by rich standards-aligned lesson plans that promote active and critical thinking. New stories are released monthly.
Instructional resources may be searched by media type, subject area and standard. They are also tagged by such compelling themes as:
- Bearing witness
- Connection to home
- Cultural displacement
- Heroism and bravery
- Human rights
- Overcoming adversity
- Violence versus peace
- Cultivating empathy
- Positive role models
- Power of love
- Social and emotional learning
Films produced by the Webby award-winning project have been featured or aired on National Geographic, PBS, The Atlantic, TED, Huffington Post, The New York Times, The New Yorker, and at the Smithsonian.
Lesson plans include thought-provoking questions for Setting the Stage, activities for Engaging with the Story, opportunities to express and explore opinions while Delving Deeper, questions to promote consideration of wider implications while Reflecting and Projecting, as well as background resources to strengthen the lesson, update events and expand the learning.
