Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

My students need one 16" political globe.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

In the context of my 8th grade classroom, I try to find every opportunity to take my students, many of whom have never traveled 5 minutes out of their own city, around the world through the literature that we learn. I teach predominantly African American and Hispanic students as well as a diverse group of Special Education students in a high-need school.

Throughout the course of the year using our curriculum, I ask my students to take a journey with me to China Town in California, Argentina, Kenya, Hong Kong, as well as a number of other destinations. To my dismay, many of my students cannot locate these countries on a map or globe. Often, I use a laminated placemat that has a map of the world to point out what region of the world we're discussing. During lunch when students come to my room to eat with me, we often talk about the map and I share with them stories of places I've had the privilege to visit. They love hearing about when I taught in Spain and Costa Rica; they often also point out places that look interesting or that they are curious about.

In order to enrich the education of my students, I would love to obtain a globe for my classroom. This simple teaching tool can serve as a focal point of our discussions about culture and history. This will inspire my students to be even more adventurous and explore stories from around the world.

Your help will allow my students to expand their boundaries and see the world from the comfort of the classroom. As an energetic and enthusiastic teacher, I know I can reach new heights in inviting my students to think globally with the use of the "world" in front of them. As a society, we want to encourage more citizens to embrace internationalism and to learn to exist in a global society. I want my students to leave my classroom not only proficient readers and writers, but more importantly, as open-minded, global thinkers. Your generosity will help me to do that more effectively.
