Supplementary materials for schools
Looking for more ways to explore global need? We find our student participants gain much more from their simulation experience if they have engaged in the subject ahead of time in the class-room, and if the learning can continue in the classroom afterwards.
To that end, we are seeking to gather teacher-developed resources in support of the many programs we run to equip teachers as they prepare their students for a visit to Crossroads. We hope to be adding to this page across the coming year, and invite you to submit any worksheets you have developed which you feel could be helpful to other teachers.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or submissions.
