Joannis Kaliampos - Speaker

Going Green is a transatlantic school project that fosters interest in innovative sustainability research across the curriculum including the humanities, languages and STEM/MINT subjects, to encourage civic engagement, and develop job qualifications for young people. It is part of the Moodle-based blended learning platform Teach About US. In this workshop, participants will:
— explore local and regional case studies of sustainable policies and citizen action in the U.S.
— review a fully developed project curriculum for teaching sustainability and American studies in the English-language classroom (aligned with EFL curricula in Germany for the Sekundarstufe II)
— analyze sample learner products and project ideas by previous participants
— experiment with hands-on interactive teaching materials and blended learning tasks on a learning platform (a print-ready PDF version is also available), including approaches to scaffold online collaboration in English
— develop ideas to start their own local and/or transatlantic sustainability projects at their schools
