Global Citizenship : NGC New Global Citizens
Using dynamic and innovative curriculum, NGC is preparing a generation of students that will face history’s biggest global challenges.
NGC equips students with critical skills in creative thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and systems thinking. Students and teachers engage with NGC through in-depth curriculum, professional development, and afterschool programs.
Programs are not only aligned with USA Common Core Standards and 21st Century Skills, they are engaging and relevant to issues in which students are interested.
Global Citizens are active members of their global and local communities. They understand that global and local problems are connected and that they play a role in solving these problems. Without global citizens, the world’s problems will never be solved.
How do we become global citizens?

20 Ideas for Teaching Citizenship to Children
http://www.kellybear.com/TeacherArticles/TeacherTip27.html
20 Ideas for Teaching Citizenship to Children
Educators are obligated to teach students the history of our democracy on a level children can comprehend. Helping students explore citizenship and connecting it to their lives are the keys to true understanding. When children are exposed to storytelling, drama, and other activities in which they are actively involved, their retention is increased. If they learn that people from other countries are not necessarily free to voice dissenting opinions, practice their religion, or even have as many children as they would like, the students will begin to appreciate their freedoms.

The Citizenship Foundation

The Citizenship Foundation
The Citizenship Foundation is an independent charity working to promote more effective citizenship through education about the law, democracy and society. Founded in 1989, it encourages
- understanding of the rights and duties of citizenship, the workings of the political, social, and legal systems and the democratic process;
- participation in community and voluntary affairs and in public life at local, national and international levels;
- the provision of experiences which enable citizens to become caring, confident and effective members of society. In particular, the Foundation seeks ways of enriching provision for those for whom the quality of citizenship would otherwise be poor.
