International Education Week

November 16 - 20

What is it?

According to,

International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.

Here are some resources on the International Week itself, as well as some facts and photos about schools around the world. There is much more information out there on the web, I am sure, but here is a start to making our students (and ourselves) more globally aware.

Have a great week!


The Buzzfeed link below does have some images on the side that may not be appropriate for students, so please be sure to preview before showing.

Have your students be the teacher!

Consider allowing some of your students to teach others their native language at some time during the week ^_^
