Instructional Ideas

  • Connect to a language arts class for a deeper research and writing project
  • Include in a school-wide focus on community service
  • Incorporate into a social studies lesson on human rights issues around the world, or scale it down for local issues of concern
Classroom Considerations

  • Resource is 15 pages long; consider projecting the pages onto the whiteboard and having learners write their responses into a notebook rather than printing the packet for all pupils
  • The sixth page uses principals instead of principles
Pros

  • Provides a sample project plan
  • List of additional resources makes a great beginning to a research project
Cons

  • None
