Welcome to ROCORI's Global Education web site.
Brazil is our 2000-2001 country of study. This is an ideal year to study Brazil which is celebrating its 500th anniversary since its discovery.
Brazil is the first country from the continent of South America to be the topic of our global studies. It almost seems as though we receive more news about Antarctica these days than from South America. Therefore, this is a wonderful time to heighten our student's interest in Brazil and South America in general.
