Podcast #9 – A Discussion Activity and an Individual Action Project

May 24th, 2007 by Dave · No Comments


First, I talk about a great (and low-prep) discussion activity that Kira came up with.

Update: A version of this activity appears in The Non-Stop Discussion Workbook. (thanks Elizabeth)

Next, I introduce an individual action project that I did with students in my global issues classes.

I briefly mention this activity on the distribution of world wealth and this activity on the salaries of athletes. I also mention reading circles and OpenOffice. This article ends with a brief list of classroom activism projects, and podcast #3 talks about planning a project-based class.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or want to share some ideas of your own.
