March Wrap-up


We have a new look! Check out our new website!

Exciting news! Well, for us, at least. Seriously – check out the new look and enjoy a comprehensive platform dedicated to advancing a love of place and fostering community engagement in Cleveland. A big thanks to all of our sponsors who make this work possible.

Teaching Cleveland Institute

Save the dates! This summer’s Teaching Cleveland Institute will take place June 24-26 at the main branch of the Cleveland Public Library from 8:30 am – 4 pm each day. The topic? Cleveland’s social history. If you want to learn more about Cleveland’s social history and also pedagogy that invites students into conversations about identity and differences, you won’t want to miss this! Plus you’ll meet amazing community leaders. CEUs and PDUs are available, as well as graduate hours from Ashland University. Learn more here.

Register for our upcoming Learning Labs!

We are kicking off our Learning Lab Series again, so join us for some “community-building” – which in Teaching Cleveland terms really just means having some drinks at happy hour and bonding with some pretty cool people. This spring, we are taking a deep dive into the issues and challenges surrounding the lakefront and examine them through three different lenses: sustainability and regional biodiversity, economic development and the built environment, and accessibility and inclusion. Learn more about the speakers, event details, and registration here. You’re going to love the conversations!

Teaching Cleveland Student Challenge

The Teaching Cleveland Student Challenge wrapped up on March 6 with our student teams’ presentation of their ideas on innovation in Cleveland — past, present, and future. We loved working with the 53 students from the area. They give us hope! Thanks, too, to Cuyahoga Community College for hosting. Shout out to the TCSC students and their teachers from the following schools. Also, click on the links and you’ll see their videos! Budding community leaders – all of them.

CWRU President’s Leadership Development Program

On Feb. 23, the Teaching Cleveland team explored with Case Western Reserve University students and staff the two major migration waves of people who came to Cleveland and changed it forever — European immigrants and Black migrants from the South. Through body biographies and conversations, the group explored the original ethnic enclaves in Cleveland, the creation of the Black ghetto, and the initial suburban wave of wealthy individuals into what are now called today the “inner ring” suburbs. The session was part of an ongoing series sponsored by the CWRU President’s Leadership Development Program.
