#GAWE2017 Day 1

Hi! I am Mareike Hachemer, a teacher from Germany. I’m excited to take over the World’s Largest Lesson Instagram account for Global Action Week for Education @gce_us . • My first encounter with WLL was actually in 2015. I heard about it through social media and I wanted to be a part of it because it sounded like a fantastic idea to excite our students about the world. So, I wrote a lesson plan about the Global Goals and translated Serena William’s WLL-video to German. Every since I have become motivated to connect all teachers, students and all learning to activities that help us understand the issues behind the Global Goals. I believe that if we connect learning to actions that help us achieve the Global Goals, we will be a fantastic movement for a better world.

My agenda for this week:
Work with my students in year 10, 11, 12 and 13 in Drama, English and German classes on Gender Equality, environmental issues and global education. Also, I’ll be working with other teachers at my school and in online collabaritions and I’m looking forward to a key note and workshop at a Hamburg school that wants to establish a global profile. Of course, just like every week, I’m going to work with other global educators at @TeachSDGs and my friends who have been fellow finalists of the Global Teacher Prize @teacherprize.
