As I mentioned in my most recent post, my students are writing their final essay today…but we’ve taken essay writing to a WHOLE new GP level this time! If you are interested in having your students not only write about global issues but be a part of the solution to one as well, CLICK HERE! Visit The GP Indie to see what we were up to today while writing.
Earlier this year, we did a unit on the value of potable water; and today students are writing to the prompt:
“How far do receiving countries really benefit from development aid?”
Being a part of the UNICEF Tap Project is providing cleaner drinking water to countries in need AND it’s giving students knowledge and experience to support the above essay prompt…share this with your kids as a mini lesson in writing and in global citizenship 😉
