Global Issue Guides

Global Issue Guides are dynamic resources which can be implemented into curriculum and adapted easily to specific school needs. Each guide focuses on a specific theme and region and explores challenges and possible solutions to a critical global issue.

Concern Active Leadership posters are a creative way to bring global issues into your school. We offer 11×16 posters to complement the issues presented in the global issue guides.

Unit Plans

Our active citizenship unit plans are standard-aligned to Common Core and the National Council for Social Studies’ National Curriculum. Each unit plan provides multiple lessons for students to learn about a global theme and apply it in a culminating activity.

Student Narrated Videos

GCC student-narrated videos are 10 minutes in length and complement the content in the global issue guides. Each video introduces the issue and challenges students to come up with possible solutions to addressing the global crisis.
