Resources for Teachers

Global Education Resources

The Cleveland Council on World Affairs helps educators and students to build their awareness of global issues, and develop skills and competencies to successfully work, learn and live in our increasingly global world. Our programs are based on a global competency framework that is aligned with broader learning goals in Ohio schools. We love working with students and educators, and we are proud to be a part of the learning journey for the next generation of Northeast Ohio citizens.
