Welcome to my TGC Capstone Project. Within these pages, you will find valuable information regarding the importance of incorporating global education into the everyday classroom. In his landmark text, The World is Flat, Thomas L. Friedman deftly describes a world without borders, where homogeneity is devalued and where diversity in all aspects of culture is celebrated. As a TGC Fellow, I have grown both as a teacher and as a member of the human race, discovering the ultimate truth, espoused by the 90's group Depeche Mode, that "people are people." In this capstone, I have shared my experiences with you. Please feel free to use this as a resource that best fits you and your individual and/or professional needs
