This project is a compilation of 24 personalized cultural geography lessons about the real world. It was developed utilizing travel and living experiences which occurred to me during a 20-year period of my teaching life. The focus of the lessons is the removal of the students from their place and a gaining of perspectives of other people in other places. The lessons are suitable for secondary students and concentrate on the areas of geography, economics, planetary degradation, culture, and religion. Research can be found which supports the study of global education as a basis for a more enlightened and productive citizenry when they are able to compare and contrast the similarities and differences existing between themselves and others.
