Established by the Coverdell World Wise Schools program of the Peace Corps, Building Bridges is a 48-page workbook containing 13 lessons plans created to introduce school children to cultural studies in order to increase their awareness of other cultures around the world, as well as their own. Designed primarily for grades 6-12, the workbook is free for downloading and could be of value to social studies, geography, and language arts teachers. Also available on the site are four other publications produced by the Peace Corps: Insights from the Field: Understanding Geography, Culture, and Service; Culture Matters: The Peace Corps Cross-Cultural Workbook; Voices from the Field: Reading and Writing About the World, Ourselves, and Others; and Looking at Ourselves and Others.
