PROJECT GOALS:

The goal of the project is to practise reading, writing, speaking, math, science, and art skills while helping students to develop in the area of Global Citizenship.

PROJECT ACTIVITIES:

The students are currently working on the final step of the project. So far, they have learned extensively about research skills, public speaking, and generating and supporting their opinions and statements. Furthermore, they are discovering the interconnectedness of all living beings.

THEORY TO PRACTICE:

My approach to the project has been to give the students quite a bit of choice and freedom. Furthermore, I have used information from the course to develop my big question and to guide students through the project. In particular, the Oxfam guide presented during the course has been quite helpful.
