Developing Inter-culturally Competent and Global Learning Curricula by Exploring Local Schools in India and Examining the Role Material Objects Play in Cross-Cultural Curricula

This project involves developing inter-culturally competent global learning curricula in North Carolina Public Schools by exploring India's diverse history, culture, and how South Asia is taught in the local schools. The program serves as a model through which pre-service teachers and in-service teachers can immediately apply their inter-cultural learning gained through this GPA program into classroom practices. The project includes teaching-faculty from 4 post secondary (one HBCU) institutions, K-12 teachers from North Carolina Public schools, and pre-service teachers enrolled in Duke's undergraduate teacher preparation program.
