Build The World

Students learn world geography through playing in a fun-filled race to build the world the fastest! Kids must work together with classmates to put continents, countries, and oceans on the right targets. This interactive game not only introduces early map skills to young learners, but also develops spatial thinking skills.

Global Read Aloud

This is a global collaboration project to connect educators and students through read-aloud, founded by an immigrant who believed in the power of books to break down biases and broaden understandings.

Global Classrooms

Connect your students to international university scholars, professionals, and visitors through interactive workshops that engage students to learn about the world cultures and investigate global issues. Through this face to face interaction, students benefit from a genuine connection to cultural diversity. Today’s students develop skills, awareness, and understanding to become global citizens in their communities and beyond. Our thematic units may include: Global Lives, Arts and Crafts, World Food and Music, Global Health, Sustainable Living and more!

Teacher Workshop

Workshops provide professional development to equip teachers with the expertise in applying global perspectives to all subjects. Offerings include easy tools and resources on how to adapt any lesson into a global lesson plan. World Affairs Council continues to seek new and innovative ways to incorporate global education into classrooms through its community, academic, and business partnerships.

Request A Global Speaker

Local professionals with a global expertise or country specific interest are available upon request to share research, culture, and expertise including global economy, finance, international commercial arbitration, trade, climate change, and more.

As a social studies teacher, I have found the World Affairs Council to be an excellent classroom partner in education. From providing international guest speakers, to hosting the International Education Summit, to participating in Academic World Quest, the WAC has promised and delivered each and every time for my students. This has been a valuable relationship for over 10 years for myself and my students.”
