International Education Week 2012--deadline October 29th!
Every day, students are bombarded with images and news from around the world. Protests in the Middle East. Elections in Venezuela. Bollywood and Hollywood. But do your students know the stories behind those images, and how to connect with them?
Watch the video to hear what students are saying about Global Lens!
This fall, the Global Film Initiative (GFI) is offering you a unique opportunity to teach your students about the world in which they live: Global Lens.
Global Lens is our critically acclaimed narrative world cinema series and features stories from more than 35 nations. Teachers like you use these films in their classroom every fall during International Education Week--and we want you to join their ranks!
"Exceptionally motivating and mind-opening...our students are still talking about the films!"
