Promoting quality education for all.

Lesson For All: Enhancing Global Competence

The Lesson for All is a set of three units focused on the right of education and the barriers that youth around the world experience when trying to access that right. Written by teachers Donna Roman (K-3 and 4-5) and Craig Perrier (High School), each unit (K-3 and 4-5) or module (High School) has four lessons with multimedia, discussion, and modes of assessment. Each lesson is mapped to the Common Core State Standards and the Global Competence Matrix.
