“(204) Manifested in the term “Men and women with and for others,” Jesuit education should provide opportunities for students to:
(205) a. Form hearts open to the suffering of others through direct contact; (206) b. Develop a critical consciousness to understand the root causes of inequality and oppression; (207) c. Gain competence to effect positive change in the local culture and the world“
How can I deepen the Global Dimension in my school and classroom?
USE GLOBAL CLASSROOM MATERIALS
You can make your lessons more global, regardless of what subject you teach, by incorporating a global dimension. Open your students’ eyes and hearts to the world around them!
Here are some tools and resources to get you started:
Share Your Experiences
The materials above mainly come from Jesuit schools and organizations around the world. We would love to continue adding to this global library. Please share any global lesson plans, activities, experiences or resources that you have found helpful with your colleagues around the world.
Adopt the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm to help deepen the global dimension of your lessons in a truly Ignatian way. The IPP is an approach to teaching influenced by the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola. The three main elements are Experience, Reflection and Action. A pre-learning element (Context) and a post-learning element (Evaluation) are also necessary for the method’s success.
