Sustainable Development Goals

Have you heard of the SDGs? If you are interested in tackling some of the sustainable development goals in your classroom but don’t know where to begin, there are teacher authors who can help you!

The 17 goals are:

  1. No poverty (free)
  2. Zero hunger
  3. Good health and well being
  4. Quality education
  5. Gender equality
  6. Clean water and sanitation
  7. Affordable and clean energy
  8. Decent work and economic growth
  9. Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
  10. Reduced inequality (free)
  11. Sustainable cities and communities
  12. Responsible consumption and production
  13. Climate action
  14. Life below water
  15. Life on land
  16. Peace, Justice, and strong institutions
  17. Partnerships for the goals

I’m trying little by little to create a unit to address each of the SDGs. My units are on sale tomorrow, August 21, for 25% off with the code BTSBoost18! Do you have a unit to share that addresses one of the goals?

I began teaching Spanish in Illinois in 1994. I have taught levels 1-4 in a small rural high school, 8th grade introductory Spanish, Biology 1, and 101 and 102 at the community college level. My Spanish classes are partnered with the community college to offer students 8 semester hours of dual credit on completion of Spanish 4. In 2011 I met Carol Gaab and Kristy Placido and have since co-authored the book "La hija del sastre" with Carol Gaab and authored the novels "La Calaca Alegre", "Bianca Nieves y los 7 toritos." "Vector," "48 horas" and "Bananas" through Fluency Matters. In 2006 I became National Board certified and I have been serving as a mentor both for candidates seeking certification in world languages other than English and a virtual mentor for candidates in all certificate areas. I completed my Masters degree in Spanish education in 2011 and did my research on the use of Understanding by Design to create meaningful cultural units for the language classroom. I am a frequent presenter on this topic, please consider me if you are interested in a workshop on backward design. In 2013 I was named the ICTFL Foreign Language teacher of the year and in 2014 I was selected as CSCTFL's teacher of the year. In November of 2014 I was lucky enough to be one of the five finalists for the ACTFL National Teacher of the Year in San Antonio, TX. What a "Cinderella" experience!

  1. I own all of the units available here, and my students and I LOVE them. It helps us to have meaningful conversations in the target language. You are amazing Carrie and not just because we have the same name and spelling. Your work has helped me transform my teaching and better my student’s quality of education. Thank you so much!

    1. Thank you SO much! I’m working on sustainable cities this fall! Hoping I get enough time to finish that one and CHOCOLATE! 😍

      Hooray for Carries!
