Educator Resources

The Center for Global Awareness provides a variety of resources for educators, students, and the general public.

  • We offer free resources for those using CGA books. They are designed for students but they can also be used by book reading groups to enhance discussion.
  • We provide free lessons plans that focus on a specific global or cross-cultural theme or issue.
  • CGA’s travel partner, Worldview 2000 Travels, offers engaging, cross-cultural travel experiences to destinations not frequently part of most travel itineraries.
