Deliberation for Global Perspectives in Teaching and Learning (DGP) is a curriculum that meets K-12 academic standards in various subjects while accomplishing vital global learning objectives:
- Encourage civil discourse
- Pique interest in current and historical topics with international implications
- Sharpen active listening and critical thinking skills
- Add diversity and creativity to classroom instruction
DGP lesson plans include teacher-developed, classroom-tested teaching methods and innovative classroom activities that teach students how to deliberate as they examine issues from all sides. The curriculum is geared to high school students; however, it can be modified for use at other levels. Additionally, the skills gained through deliberation help students in their professional careers and to play an active role as engaged citizens.
