Teach the World Workshop #2: Invite the World to your Classroom

Oregon Historical Society, 1200 SW Park

Portland, OR 97205, US (map)



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.

Please email Karen Ettinger at karen@worldoregon.org for a list of Culture Boxes and their Alignment with Oregon Standards and Common Core.
