WAC Resources: 2017 Updates Coming Soon!
It is the goal that WAC teachers and mentors serve primarily as coaches helping students prepare for the Challenge. Students should feel empowered to take the lead as much as they are able and willing, and encouraged to take ownership over their own success.
In order to help teachers facilitate international learning and prepare students for the Challenge, WAC provides extensive support materials, linked below:
2017 Teacher Planning Guide: Includes WAC history and general information, team-building strategy, student preparation suggestions, judging criteria and grading rubrics, and tips for success.
2017 WAC Activities Guide: Curriculum and teacher resources.
Challenge Preparation Materials: linked below for quick access.
Optional Activities or Field Trips:
Visit the Posner Center for International Development and hear from development professionals working to address international challenges every single day. Set up your field trip by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
And more: Interesting, relevant events and news, access to WAC highlighted current events, and additional reading lists.
