GLOBAL STUDIES PROGRAM

AT WATKINSON SCHOOL

CHECK OUT THE 2020 DIPLOMA STUDENTS' PORTFOLIO SITES

Summer Reading- 2019

This summer, the Global Studies students read The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down to explore the intersection between culture, global public health, and immigration.

This story of Lia Lee, a Hmong immigrant child with epilepsy, and her family, doctors and social workers was the center of our work studying cultural competency.

 

We also explores the history of the Hmong people, their role fighting with the US in the Vietnam War, and their immigration to the US as refugees. Check out some of our resources.

Global Studies Events

"An overarching theme throughout all of the events I attended this trimester seemed to be a call for love and compassion for all, and a plea for open dialogue and respect for all viewpoints."  Sam V '18, Global Studies Diploma Student

The goal of the Global Studies Program is to develop active, engaged global citizens. To expose ourselves to new ideas and opinions, we host speakers at Watkinson School, Skype with experts around the world and travel to talks, plays, conferences and more.  Check out our full list of events this year.
