KDSL Global Releases Paper on Social Studies at American Curriculum Schools in Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI, UAE, NOVEMBER 12, 2017 – KDSL Global today released a paper in collaboration with The Global Sleepover, which examines the progress American curriculum schools in Abu Dhabi have made on implementing the UAE National Education and Social Studies Standards. KDSL Global is a USA and UAE-based leading learning organization focused on empowering educators and education businesses globally.

Kevin Simpson, KDSL Global Managing Director stated, “Schools, leaders and educators are working hard to implement the Social Studies Standards around the UAE. KDSL Global felt it was opportune to spotlight tools for policymakers, school administrators, and teachers to create awareness around these standards. It is important for schools to be aware of what resources exist to ensure they are building high quality social studies programs focused on what is best for students.”

The paper features recommendations for schools seeking to improve their programs of study and social studies specific resources, such as The Global Sleepover’s K-5 interactive curriculum. Geeta Raj, President of The Global Sleepover added, “In creating our K-5 interactive curriculum on UAE social studies, we first conducted in-depth research on the history, cultural heritage and traditions of the UAE. Then, using the rich resources, images and documents we discovered, we created child friendly stories covering various facets of UAE history. Children love stories and remember historical events better through characters, imagery and captivating plots. Finally, our interactive design allows for a child to hear music, see photographs, watch videos and learn vocabulary words as he/she reads the story. It’s a perfect blend of education, entertainment and engagement.” Visit https://globalsleepover.com/uae-social-studies-curriculum/ to find out more about this curriculum.
