Teaching Resources

SPICE Scholars Corner

Since 1976, the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE) has served as a bridge between Stanford University and K–12 schools and community colleges by developing multidisciplinary curricular materials on international topics, conducting teacher professional development seminars, and teaching distance-learning courses. 

SPICE Scholars Corner features videos of scholars from the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) discussing contemporary issues and research in their fields of expertise, reflecting FSI’s research interest in the problems, policies, and processes that cross international borders and affect lives around the world. Each video is accompanied by a suggested short activity and/or lesson that can be used in the classroom to help students better understand the content being discussed.
