In support of this challenge, State Schools Superintendent David Stewart is encouraging every school in West Virginia to observe International Education Week throughout their schools and classrooms. The attached document outlines several suggestions and activities that can be easily implemented during the International Education Week to broaden students’ understanding of the world in which we live. For more information, please go to the International Education Week website at http://exchanges.state.gov/iew
The Department of Education encourages you to use your creativity as you modify and adapt these activities to the particular needs of your school. In addition, we request that schools provide the Department of Education with a brief summary of your commemoration activities. Please send your feedback, along with any questions or comments to Amelia Davis Courts at firstname.lastname@example.org or Debbie Harki at email@example.com . Schools submitting summaries of activities will receive a resource book on International Education. Thank you for your participation.
