Invite the World to Your Classroom with Culture Boxes! 
A Workshop for K-12 Teachers & Youth Program Leaders

 

You are invited to attend this first ever Culture Box Workshop where you will “dig in” and explore these treasures and visit with teachers K-12 who have had extensive experience with them. 

 
The Global & Multicultural Resource Center (GMRC) is the heart of World Affairs Council of Oregon's K-12 Global Classroom Youth and Education Program housing an extensive 30 year collection of Culture Boxes on over 100 countries of the world. These boxes are filled with hands-on, authentic treasures and lessons about the art, culture, and daily life of people from every continent.
 
Our Equity Materials Library addresses multicultural, anti-bias, civil and human rights issues both here and around the globe. Our Cultural Immersion Program helps transform your school into a microcosm of the world with cultural displays, guest speakers, artists-in-residence, and props. Last year our Culture Boxes were enjoyed by over 10,000 students K – 12.
