Global Ambassador Program
Students need the tools to understand each other. Building bridges across cultures does not happen organically. If students from dierent cultures are put in the same room, they will naturally congregate toward the people that look, act and talk like them. People are naturally designed to cluster together in their own cultural groups. EduBoston has developed and created this entire program so that partner schools have additional resources to use in their schools.
In this course EduBoston covers aspects of the cultural divide that can aect schools and oer teachers and sta resources and exercises that will enlighten the domestic student population. The EduBoston partner schools are trained to teach this program to American students. The teachers are given the classroom resources, all teaching materi-als, homework assignments and rubrics to use in the International cultural classroom with a select few American students.
EduBoston prides itself in oering this additional program to partner schools to allow them to work directly with American students in the classroom.
