In keeping with Alberta Education’s focus on Global Citizenship, ACGC is pleased to share Development in a Box.
Designed to be an educational kit to be used by educators, Development in a Box aids in the incorporation of global issues into the curriculum and classroom for grades seven through twelve. Kits include lesson plans, hands-on activities and supplies, as well as connections to local organizations (from the ACGC membership) who are working internationally. The kits are available to Alberta classrooms free of charge. Lessons address many global issues and are linked to curriculum objectives in the Alberta Program of Studies.
Understanding the budgetary limitations and time constraints that educators face, ACGC has built this resource to include everything you will need! Laid out lesson plans, curriculum connections, and all the materials needed for implementing the activities are contained in the box and will be delivered right to your school!
Development in a Box Grades 7-12 is currently being offered as a Digital Resource.
ACGC is also happy to announce that the Development in a Box kits for grades 1-6 are also available! Please visit our Development in a Box 1-6 section for more information.
If you have any questions about this program, please feel free to get in touch.
The lessons have been divided into different thematic areas for ease of locating the appropriate lesson. This is explained in both the Table of Contents and Lesson Descriptions portions of the Development in a Box Resource Guide.
