Global Gateway to K-12 Education

The Global Gateway to K-12 Education for Students provides a unique “window-to-the-world” for schools in Missoula. The pilot program included the development of a series of six cross-cultural and global competence learning modules tailored for two elementary schools and one high school in Missoula. These modules were designed to support the teacher in the classroom with their individual curriculum plans and learning goals, by offering an additional, international and global perspective.

For spring 2015, the series was expanded to eight cross-cultural and global competence learning modules.
