10th Grade

Global Awareness

Global awareness is having a sense of what’s out there, knowing what can’t be put in a textbook, essay, or white paper.  It places humanity and justice in the center of self-discovery and learning.  Students and faculty fold global awareness into daily learning and life at Moses Brown.

Whether watching a professional theater production of a work they’re studying or visiting a National Institutes of Science mathematical research facility, students get out of their routines and comfort zones to see how what they’re learning in school plays out in the real world.

Spring break and summer trips extend students’ learning in dramatic and powerful ways.  Whether they’re doing field researchers as citizen scientists and repairing cattle fences in Yellowstone with a Montana rancher, tutoring schoolgirls in Nepal, or helping run medical clinics in rural villages in the Dominican Republic, Moses Brown students have a broad range of opportunities to learn about the world first-hand, guided by the same thoughtful and caring educators they work with every day.  Through it all, we bring our classrooms to the world, and the world to our classrooms.
