Teacher Resources

Internationalizing the Curriculum

Internationalizing the curriculum is what this is all about. While useful for students, it is especially geared to the needs of faculty developing new courses with an international focus or updating course units. It is also great as a research tool. Take special note of the teaching and curriculum resources. There is no need to start from scratch.

Please be aware that this portion of the International Programs & Services website is an addition not only for teachers in search of various resources, but a good source for those researching the K-12 Program. Therefore, please check out the K-12 Program on this site, too.
