Where would you be today without your teachers? Chances are you’d have great difficulty reading a news story, budgeting your family resources, or understanding another’s point of view. For their essential contributions to the advancement of humanity, members of the UN family recognize teachers each year on October 5, or World Teachers’ Day.
TeachUNICEF provides American teachers with tools for all students to learn about global issues. Teachers can use the free interdisciplinary resources at TeachUNICEF.org to enhance their students’ learning in social studies, English language arts, mathematics, and several other subject areas. They can also teach weighing perspectives and taking action for change to help their students become global citizens. We at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF honor all teachers, and particularly those who unite and empower American youth to learn about issues which affect children worldwide.
Here are some ways you can honor the teachers in your life for World Teachers’ Day:
- Print out the official World Teachers’ Day poster
- Send them official World Teachers’ Day e-cards
- Share your photos on Education International’s World Teachers’ Day Flickr page
- Join the conversation about World Teachers’ Day at the TeachUNICEF Facebook page
- Tweet with the hashtag #wtd2011
- Just say “thank you!”
