    Future teachers learn to create global classrooms
    Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017

    When Sam Rossmiller talks about his future teaching career, he describes classrooms filled with diverse learners who readily share their perspectives, ideas and cultural values. His hope, he says, is that through these kinds of global learning communities his students will better understand each other and themselves as they figure out their place in the world. Rossmiller, a broadfield social studies major, spent time this summer as an aide in Peruvian schools that incorporate the kinds of global curriculum that he says could work well in U.S. classrooms. Rossmiller is part of a multiyear international research project that aims to better prepare future teachers to build global learning communities.
