Cross-Institutional Collaboration ; Proposal: DEVELOPING INTERCULTURALLY COMPETENT AND GLOBAL LEARNING CURRICULA BY EXPLORING LOCAL SCHOOLS IN INDIA AND EXAMINING THE ROLE MATERIAL OBJECTS PLAY IN CROSS-CULTURAL CURRICULA. The Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad (PA)supports overseas projects in training, research, and curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies for groups of teachers, students, and faculty engaged in a common endeavor. The Duke project involves developing interculturally competent global learning curricula in North Carolina Public Schools by exploring India’s diverse history, culture, and how South Asia is taught in the local schools. The program will serve as a model through which pre-service teachers and in-service teachers can immediately apply their inter-cultural learning gained through this GPA program into classroom practices. The project involves teaching-faculty from 4 post secondary (one HBCU) institutions, K-12 teachers from North Carolina Public schools, and pre-service teachers enrolled in the undergraduate teacher preparation program at Duke University. I will serve as the project's director of pre-service and in-service teachers.
