Global Issues — Weeks 5-7

November 6th, 2008 by Dave · No Comments

Materials Used:

Each Tuesday, students led reading circle articles. In addition, on the Tuesday of week 5, I introduced some ideas for final project topics and actions. For homework, I asked them to write out a one to two paragraph long proposal, due the following week. On Thursday I gave them a rubric outlining the project requirements. We also watched a clip from Pay It Forward and did some discussion questions.

Tuesday of week 6, I gave students some more ideas for final project topics and actions. I also asked students to get into groups and do mini-presentations on their topic and action ideas. On Thursday, my mentee taught, doing a lesson on issues in Africa.

Week 7, after the reading circles, I introduced the World Changer Interview. I asked students to choose a person, find some information, and prepare 5 questions that they would like to be asked about. We will do the interview roleplay next week. On Thursday, my mentee taught again, doing a review lesson that culminated in having the students present short news reports in groups.

If you’d like any more info on any of these activities, feel free to ask!
