In our increasingly complex digital society, students receive information about the people and events of the world from a myriad of sources, some of which are of questionable accuracy. From the earliest grades, librarians and teachers need to equip students with reliable information that help build understanding and critical thinking about world cultures and events.
CultureGrams is the solution as the leading reference for concise and reliable cultural information on the countries of the world. CultureGrams offers content and features that go beyond mere facts and figures to deliver a one-of-a-kind perspective on daily life and culture, including the background, customs, and lifestyles of the world’s people. Cultural and almanac-type information about U.S. states and Canadian provinces are also offered in CultureGrams.
In this webinar, learn about the benefits of CultureGrams to build bridges of understanding and empathy across the curriculum. Also see specific in-product examples of how to use CultureGrams for a range of subjects to create engaging assignments for multiple grade levels. This is a great way for k-12 to learn about CultureGrams, a cultural resource created and owned by the Kennedy Center.
