Educators from all disciplines are invited to learn about the World Heritage Tool Kit- a resource developed by local educators full of lesson plans and ideas for explorations. The World Heritage Tool Kit can help teachers and their students develop a transnational analysis in their classrooms by using themes of world heritage as a framework to understand global regions across disciplines. These themes include shared architectural, cultural, economic, environmental, political, recreational, religious, and social heritage features. Lesson plans cover topics such as:
- World heritage around the world - Learning about the cities, sites, and cultures abroad
- Historical "Global" Philadelphia
- Today's "Global" Philadelphia - Learning more about & from immigrant communities
The City of Philadelphia is engaged in a bid to become the first World Heritage City in the United States. The World Heritage Tool Kit is one of many activities celebrating this initiative. This effort is led by the Global Philadelphia Association in partnership with the City of Philadelphia Commerce Department.
