Cleveland

Our Cleveland office has helped more than 159,400 students connect history with the choices they make every day, and consider how they can make a difference.

Since the Cleveland office was established in 1999, Facing History has provided more than 2,450 educators with programs and resources that connect the study of history to lessons about tolerance, respect and civic participation today. These teachers reach over 159,400 middle and high school students in 294 public, independent, and religious schools across Ohio.

Since 2008, Facing History has deepened its relationship with Cleveland area school districts including Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) and expanded its in-depth schools network to include Facing History New Tech High School, Laurel School, Citizens Leadership Academy, Magnificat High School, Hawken Middle School and Hathaway Brown Middle School. In addition to providing one-on-one support to individual teachers as they infuse Facing History's content and approach into their respective classrooms, Facing History has also been integrated into an ongoing program within CMSD -- Facing History New Tech High School.

    Fostering Civil Discourse, Part 1

    There has been much conversation about the need to foster civil discourse: in our government, in our media and in our classrooms and communities. As we consider ongoing issues related to race, justice, and policing, educators are rightly concerned about the lessons that today’s middle and high school students might be absorbing.

    Facing Ferguson: News Literacy in a Digital Age

    The shooting of Michael Brown and the protests that followed became a flashpoint for the discussion about race, policing, and justice. Using the information aftermath of Ferguson and a new unit co-created by Facing History and Ourselves and the News Literacy Project, this workshop will examine how implicit biases shape our understanding of the world, and how news literacy skills and concepts can help students find reliable information to make decisions, take action, and become effective civic participants in today’s complex information landscape.
