Andrew Jackson School Celebrates World Heritage Education Week


The Middle East Center, South Asia Center and Penn Museum at the University of Pennsylvania, as members of the Global Philadelphia Association, coordinated a variety of activities to support World Heritage Education week at Andrew Jackson School in Philadelphia. The theme of World Heritage helped students understand how we are connected to the world and how the world is connected to us. It  also helped deepen their knowledge about less commonly taught world regions. Teachers at Jackson utilized the Philadelphia World Heritage Tool Kit created by local educators through our 2015 Global Education Summer Institute. Students at Jackson  experienced the global character of our city through field trips to Museums with international exhibits. The entire school community celebrated their diversity and heritage through interactive presentations and dialogue.
