The World Week program incorporates contextual teaching and learning (CTL). This educational approach helps teachers relate content to real world situations and motivates students to make connections between knowledge and its applications to their lives as family members and world citizens.
The Washington State Consortium for Contextual Teaching & Learning offers some great resources and examples of CTL in practice.
Christopher Redner, World Week founder, produces the "Exploring Contextual Teaching & Learning" television and streaming media series for the Washington State Consortium for Contextual Teaching & Learning.
