Cadre 19Language Arts
Compare and ContrastBrainstorm
overall goal
of your GLP
Students will learn about other cultures; looking for differences and similarities, andgive them a real life example of compare and contrast, which will build on thatconcept.Search and review existing projects
, resources around the topic, etc to see what is already outthere and how your project can benefit the current GLP projects.
Believe it, or n
ot, I couldn’t find anything on
comparing and contrasting.Even though you could possibly use the compare and contrast concept with quite afew of the projects out there.Working Title of your GLP
The working title for my Global Learning Project is:
Cool Cultures - Comparing and Contrasting (using alliteration)
.Subject of GLP
 Language Arts
List the Type/s of GLP structures
The types of GLP structures that I will be using are:
Information Exchanges
Electronic Publishing
Parallel Problem SolvingDefine your project participants
[i.e. target audience]
Biographical info about yourself:4
Grade Class in Menifee. Located in SouthernCalifornia in the United States of America.
What type of participants will you need to make the project successful?
Participants should be grade-levels 3-5. Preferably English speaking, but notnecessary, located in any place in the world.
 How many classrooms would make the GLP effective
?Counting the host classroom, you could actually do it with one other class, but the moreparticipants the better. Ideally, it would be good to have at least 4 participants,preferably from different regions/continents of the world.
What will your participant’s roles be?
They will answer the prompts provided on the project website and post a video recordedmessage, or a picture/s with a written or audio recorded message to go with their answers(participants will actually e-mail or link their files, then I will upload them). Then they

will compare and contrast the two different presentations once they are uploaded andposted.Define Time parameters
[start/end dates]What is your target date for implementing your GLP?
My target date for implementing my GLP is as soon as I can! Possibly sometime atthe end of February.
What is the target date for concluding your GLP
I’m not
sure; it might be an ongoing thing.State the rationale
. Why is your project important or worthwhile?
Students will learn a variety of interesting facts from other cultures.
They will learn what is outside of their own “world” and gain a respect
,appreciation, and understanding of the people who live in this world, andhopefully ignore any stereotyping they hear of any other cultures.
They will see differences, but they will also learn about commonalities that wehave with other people and countries.Write a synopsis
of your GLP [1-2 paragraphs]This is like an advertisement that you will use to give prospective participants a clear ideaof what it is about.
Hi and welcome to Cool Cultures - Compare and Contrast! In this GlobalLearning Project you will answer some prompts about your culture! You will answerthe questions and respond by creating a video or a digital picture slideshow. Youcould even make an audio presentation if you would like!Then you will e-mail your presentations and I will post them in a personalizedblog on the Cool Cultures
Compare and Contrast website. Once the presentationsare posted, your presentation will be side by side with another (differentpresentation). You will then compare and contrast your culture with the other. You
will type your response in the blog. That’s it! You will have
a great time learningabout the world around you!State specific Objectives, Standards and Global Learning Outcomes
[use action verbs]Write as specific learning objectives. You may link to standards if possible at this phase inthe process. This will continue to evolve as you build your project in your next class. Things to
ask yourself….
Students will interact with other students in different regions of the world, learningtheir current culture and possibly customs.
They will learn what is outside of their own “world” and gain a respect
, appreciation,and understanding of the people who live in this world, and hopefully ignore anystereotyping they hear of any other cultures.

Students will be asked to view or download a text document from the project website thatwill have questions/prompts. They will answer the questions/prompts by creating a video orpicture slideshow with comments. They will answer the provided prompts and send me thecompleted projects. I will then post them on a website where they will respond to thepresentations.Describe Project activities
(introductory, learning and culminating activities

Students will gain a better understanding of their own culture as they answer theprompts/questions. They will also gain an understanding of other cultures around the worldand analyze the similarities and differences as they compare and contrast on their blogs.Define collaboration
How will you communicate
? I will communicate through e-mail and blogging.

In what language will you communicate
? The language that I will communicateit is English. If possible I will translate some of the documents into otherlanguages.
How will you accommodate other languages?
I am a fluent Spanish speaker, so Icould accommodate any Spanish speaking regions. If there is another country
that would like to participate that doesn’t speak English or Sp
anish, I mightpossibly look into an online language translator.
How often will you communicate with partners
?As much as necessary, but wewill only need to communicate 2-3 times.
How will you collaborate with partner teachers
? Through e-mail and blogs, possiblySkype.
How will students collaborate
Students will communicate through the blog/s on the website.
Also, possibly, through Skype. I will have to think about it.
