One World Education (OWEd) is a non-profit organization that promotes youth literacy and developing peer-to-peer curriculum that empowers teachers and engages students. OWEd utilizes student-authored writing about culture and global issues as teaching tools for other students. One World Education works with students and teachers in schools and communities through its two signature programs: Culture & Global Issues Reflection Program and The One World Curriculum:
Culture & Global Issues Reflection Program:
Middle and high school students submit writing about experiences with culture, local and global issues. Twelve students annually become One World Ambassadors and have their writing published on our website with aligned One World Curriculum, allowing students to learn from their peers.
The One World Curriculum:
Through our website, the One World Curriculum showcases middle and high school student writing about culture, local and global issues. This student-authored writing is aligned with Common Core State Standards for educators teaching core academic subjects and global studies.
