    Drawing on a Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Experience, Professor Encourages Global Citizenship in Clemson Students

    Bailey at Malbork Castle, a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization site in Poland

    This article was edited and adapted from an article on Clemson University's Newstand website by Michael Staton.

    Beatrice Bailey, professor of social studies education in Clemson’s College of Education, participated in the 2018 Fulbright-Hays Seminar Abroad Program that focused on exploring contemporary U.S.-Poland relations.

    After traveling abroad with the Seminars Abroad program, participants return to their home institutions and share their broadened knowledge and experiences with students and colleagues in the U.S. According to Bailey, the true beneficiaries of her experience abroad were her Clemson students, especially undergraduate students in her “Principles of American Education” course. Bailey stated, “I’m charging each student to design a model K-12 Global Citizenship Education activity for a discipline of their choice and grade level that focuses on U.S.-Poland relations. As future educators, they can help students become ‘world changers’ in any discipline or grade level as they encourage these types of activities.”

    During her time in Poland, Bailey met ambassadors and experts on international relations, traveled to see historical sites and modern communities, and took part in discussions and cultural events designed to connect specialists from different academic disciplines. Bailey gained insights into the U.S.-Poland relationship and noted the particular affinity between the two countries and their people. “Before this trip, I couldn’t have imagined the kinds of connections we have and could have with Poland, from the wide variety of multinational corporations and think tanks to the international film industry evolving within Poland’s borders. The trip reinforced my belief in Clemson and our entire nation’s need to focus more fully on education from kindergarten to postgraduate work that emphasizes global citizenship.”

    Bailey drew upon her Fulbright-Hays experience to develop a curriculum for her students at Clemson. As part of the curriculum, Bailey required her Clemson education students to write letters to Clemson alumna Nicki Haley, who was serving as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (U.N.) at the time, to share ideas for ways that K-12 students in Poland and the U.S. could work together to address U.N. development goals. Students posted their U.S.-Poland curricular designs on a blog that current and future teachers could use in their own classrooms. “The ideal student in South Carolina and at Clemson is one who is prepared for global citizenship,” Bailey said. “Through our curriculum simulation and correspondence with U.N. Ambassador Haley, we’re showing how any teacher can begin to design ways to encourage global citizenship within their discipline and grade level.”

    Bailey’s experience in the Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad program has been personally enriching as well. “I have remained in touch with several colleagues from that experience,” Bailey noted, and described her overall experience in Poland as “terrific.”

    We ALL Can Do It:
    Empowering All Learners in the Language Classroom
    Presented by Rebecca Aubrey, ACTFL Teacher of the Year (2019)

    June 17, 10AM Arizona (10AM PDT/1PM EDT)

    Learning a language is no longer just about preparing for college, but about preparing all students to live in a globalized world. Thus, every student has a right to study languages and teachers need to meet their diverse needs. We typically add differentiation strategies after a lesson has been developed. This is time-consuming and disrespectful of the diversity of our students.

    In this webinar, participants will learn to differentiate through backwards design by individualizing proficiency targets within a common theme, empowering students to self-direct how they show their learning, and designing a variety of learning activities.  To learn more and register for this free online event, visit:
