The Longview Foundation focuses its resources on kindergarten through grade 12 education in the United States. Within the innovations focus area, programs support strategic, field-building activities that help address gaps in knowledge or capacity. Advancement of global education in new and creative mechanisms is particularly of interest. Previous grants in this field supported projects connecting schools with communities around international children’s literature and programs building professional development resources for teachers that internationalize the US history perspectives taught in middle and high school.
Projects that directly support building global perspectives in teachers and students are supported. The foundation is particularly interested in the following:
• Promoting integration of international content into the Common Core State Standards implementation process.
• Bringing international knowledge and skills to out-of-school-time programming.
• Bringing international knowledge and skills to career and technical education.
• Including international children’s literature in literacy-building initiatives.
• Internationalizing US history resources.
