Teaching Cleveland’s network of experienced teachers are available for custom professional development programs.

Teaching Cleveland offers a variety of professional development experiences from 90 minutes to four hours. Teaching Cleveland works with educators to learn more about Cleveland history, connects them to local resources and organizations, and facilitates conversations that connect participants to issues of Cleveland’s past, present and future.

Of particular interest has been Teaching Cleveland’s exploration of the history of ethnicity and race in Cleveland. The program focuses on the various immigrant and migrant groups who came to Cleveland in the late 19th and early 20th century, the changing racial landscape brought on by federal housing policies and redlining, and the challenges of Cleveland schools desegregation.

Programs can be crafted by topics. For more information, please submit a request form here.
