The Global Book Hour integrates geography, vocabulary, music, visual arts, and healthy eating into a weekly, one-hour, session held at local businesses.
Each week focuses on a different part of the world, and all activities center on "travel" to this location. Children and their families participate in the weekly activities, and continue learning with the book received, and through suggested activites made available at the session and online.
Buffalo State undergraduate and graduate students facilitate the GBH program. A clinically-rich field experience, the GBH allows teacher candidates from a variety of disciplines to work together to lead this university-business-community partnership.
The Global Book Hour is held every Monday afternoon at WASH from October 5 to December 7, 2015. A second program is held every Saturday morning at the Wegmans Cafe on Amherst in Buffalo. Visit the website for full details.
