Developing Responsible Educated Aware Motivated Students
Through Global Awareness
What is EFAC DREAMS:
EFAC DREAMS is a pilot program working closely with schools to create learning environments that encourages students to become critical thinkers, responsible global citizens, and future leaders.
We provide an authentic learning experience in the classroom through the use of technology, components of rigor, critical thinking skills, and problem solving. This is all done while building relationships with EFAC scholarship students from Kenya. Standards are aligned with instruction to develop student leadership skills and global awareness. Students learn what it means to give back and how it can and will change the world.
While planning lessons we ask ourselves the following 3 questions:
1)What are the standards we need to teach?
2)How can we make this lesson relevant and rigorous?
3) How does this lesson promote global awareness and prepare our students to succed in the globally competitive world in which they live?
What is Rigor?
Rigor is the goal of helping students develop the capacity to understand content that is complex, ambiguous, provocative, and personally or emotionally challenging..
