Global study is the study of political, economic, social and cultural relationships of the world. We believe that the reality of globalization necessitates that educators and students be well-educated in global studies.


How we can assist

We understand that developing global studies programs is a complex and time-consuming process.

To assist you with this process, we will work with you to offer programs in the following areas:

We can also offer you packaged teaching kits, and lessons from our website. Either can be customized to your specific needs.

Working within your frameworks we will bring you cost effective and technology driven solutions.

All our programs discuss ways for teachers to explore connections to common core standards, their state curriculum standards and connections across disciplines and subjects. 

Content areas

The regional focus of the programs will be on India.

Subject areas for the programs include, but are not limited to history, geography, government, literature, art, art history and religion.

Technology driven solutions

Teach India Project is a virtual, online organization and has used technology as it's basis of work since its inception. We incorporate technology such as blogs and online discussions into program delivery. The idea is to allow participants to collaborate as an online learning community in order to facilitate learning beyond the classroom.

Let's get started!

As a first step in assisting you with your global studies programs, we can:

  • Perform a needs-assessment study around curriculum and teaching resources, and current professional development programs.

  • Conduct interviews/discussions with various stakeholders to understand the gaps and needs of global studies programs in your school/school district
